Louisville metro council approves earlier alcohol sales

Louisville metro council approves earlier alcohol sales, With the Kentucky Derby 139 quickly approaching, restaurant owners in Louisville, Kentucky got a bit of good news on Thursday, April 25 according to WDRB News.

The report states that Louisville metro council members voted 16-7 in favor of allowing customers to order beer, wine, or other alcoholic beverages beginning at 10a.m. on Sundays. Before the change, Louisville establishments weren't allow to sell alcoholic beverages before 1p.m. on Sundays.

One supporter reportedly told WDRB that the measure was expected to boost breakfast and brunch sales for many businesses in the area.

However, not everyone is so enthusiastic about the change. Some council members worry that selling alcohol earlier in the day could lead to higher crime rates. Council members are especially concerned about how the change will affect crime in the city's west end, which is known to have a high crime rate already.

It's worth noting that this time change only applies to restaurants, and does not affect sales for other stores.

It's unclear if the change will take effect before the Kentucky Oaks and Derby, which will be held at Churchill Downs race track on May 3 and 4, but business owners are hopeful.
