My northern state requires all liquor shops to be closed on Sundays which is good idea. But in the southern states, why they close all the regular shops (any stores) on Sunday morning until 1 or 2 p.m. and then they close at around 4 p.m. Where is the fun that people can enjoy and walk around the stores on Sundays if they do not feel like to attend their church once a while? That is kind of creep to me. The malls in my area open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For Monday to Saturday, it open at 10 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. It's because it is better for the employees to make money.
In Alabama, most stores open at between 10 am and 12 pm on Sunday but back in 1960's, most places closed, even mall, not anymore today.
