As of Sept. 23, it is legal to buy package alcohol on a Sunday anywhere in Columbia County.
The city of Harlem officially approved Sunday sales at its Sept. 17 meeting, after both the city of Grovetown and unincorporated areas of Columbia County, including Evans and Martinez. Sunday sales in Grovetown became legal in late 2012 and Columbia County Sunday sales became legal the first weekend of September.
For local retailers, the ability to sell spirits on Sunday has proved to be neither boon nor bust. Instead, they say, it seems like business as usual.
