(GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C.) Greenville County restaurants will soon start selling alcohol on sundays now that voters overwhelmingly approved that ballot referendum.
The measure passed Tuesday with 70% of the vote. City restaurants can sell liquor on Sunday, but the county wasn’t allowed to. Earlier this year, county council members voted in favor of putting the referendum on the ballot so that voters can decide whether they wanted to buy alcohol on Sunday. More than 135,000 said yes.
“It’s just about making business fairness throughout the whole county where as a business owner on the same playing field as another business owner just one exit in either direction of me,” said David McCraw, owner of Palmetto Restaurant and Ale House.
McCraw says it should take about two weeks to get a license from the Department of Revenue before Sunday sales can take place at his restaurant.
