You can buy liquor on Sunday in Cheney, Garden Plain, Andale, Colwich (see photo), Douglass and even Walton. And soon you’ll be able to buy it in Maize and Benton. But not in the state’s largest city.
Why not? The reason, apparently, is that most Wichita liquor store owners don’t want to work on Sundays, and they’ve convinced the Wichita City Council not to approve Sunday sales, even though convenience and grocery stores in Wichita want it. But the question should be what consumers want, not what the store owners want. And liquor store owners don’t have to be open on Sundays if they don’t want to be.
