WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The time is finally here. Sunday alcohol sales are now legal in Indiana between noon and 8 p.m.

"So it's a nice day out, and well, it's the first day we can buy alcohol in Indiana on a Sunday since like the Prohibition," Kami Knies said.


Hoosiers can now purchase alcohol seven days a week. Luke Kessert said the new law makes planning for a weekend more convenient. 

"You know, you don't have to worry about planning on Saturdays and stuff ... it takes a load off your mind," Kessert said.

Purdue student Sam Inman is not from Indiana and said he didn't necessarily understand the law in the first place.

"Coming from Wisconsin, occasionally, I like to throw a couple jokes about Indiana's liquor laws," Inman said.

Others like Knies are simply used to the rule.

"I kind of grew up with this because I'm from Indiana," Knies said.

The new law goes hand in hand with Anna Sacco's Sunday activities.

"I usually do my grocery shopping on Sunday, and I'm like, well, yeah, I can't buy wine; I can't buy beer," Sacco said.

In the end, Sacco is excited about weekends to come.

"We found out on Facebook," she said. "I told her, 'We have to go out and like make it like a holiday.'"
