Sunday beer sales wanted in Brandon

BRANDSON, Miss. (AP) - Several businesses have approached Brandon city aldermen about passing a law in Brandon to allow for Sunday beer sales, as many of their Rankin County neighboring cities have done.

Cities in Rankin have began legalizing Sunday sales in the past year and a half. Pearl was the latest to approve the sale of beer on Sundays, and Flowood, Pelahatchie and the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District also allow Sunday sales.

Mayor Tim Coulter tells The Clarion-Ledger that Brandon businesses want to be able to compete with the other businesses.

Rick Henson, senior pastor of Oakdale Baptist Church in Brandon, said he's not convinced extended hours would generate more profit.
