Sunday carryout alcohol sales begin at Indiana stores

(Carli Luca / News Now Warsaw)

People streamed into grocery and liquor stores across Indiana on Sunday as they were able to buy carryout alcohol for the first time.

Indiana’s Sunday alcohol sales ban stretched back to the 1800s and often left new residents and visitors to the state bewildered.

Gov. Eric Holcomb joined in the first Sunday purchases, buying some beer from an Indianapolis shop four days after signing the bill allowing alcohol sales noon-8 p.m. on Sundays.
