WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette shoppers are ready to have the option of buying alcohol on Sundays.

Shopper Derian Reuss said this will make life easier for him when it comes to preparing meals. 

"If I forget, it's not that I'm going to be stocking up on Whiskey every weekend, but hey if I wanted to pick up a bottle of wine to go with dinner," Reuss said. "That's probably the biggest change it is going to make for me."

The next step is Governor Eric Holcomb's signature. The amendment will make the law effective immediately and Holcomb said he won't let too many Sundays pass before signing the bill.

David Wood who lives in Lafayette and still has concerns. He said although it's nice to enjoy a Sunday afternoon celebrating, he wants everyone to be safe.

"I have wanted to buy alcohol on Sunday every once in awhile you know, and so this will be helpful there, but as long as we don't see an increase in drinking and driving, I'm okay with." Wood said.

Once the law is made official, carry-out alcohol will be sold on Sundays between noon and 8 p.m. For now, Hoosiers will continue to wait until they can buy alcohol on Sundays.
