MACOMB, Illinois (NEWS3) — Macomb businesses will now be allowed to sell packaged alcohol on Sundays.
The Macomb City Council passed the ordinance Monday night in a 7-0 vote.
The law also gives 18-year-old workers the right to sell alcohol to customers and allows stores to keep alcohol products on store shelves.
The ordinance only allows for liquor purchases between 12 p.m. and 9 p.m. and no keg of beer sales
The vote comes after Macomb Hy-Vee store director Melissa Worley proposed the idea.
Businesses will be able to apply for a Sunday liquor license starting April 1.
