“If the law is changed, as soon as one dealer opens, they’ll all have to open,” said Scott Lambert, executive vice president of the Minnesota Automobile Dealers Association.

“It is the dealership employees who really suffer. For the dealerships, you’re adding costs and not really adding sales, overall. Managers, sales personnel are either going to have to work seven days a week or they’re going to have to hire additional personnel.”

Sunday liquor sale supporters are preparing for a major push in the Legislature again this year. Right now, no one is talking about pushing for a change to the Sunday car sale ban.

Lambert and his members hope it stays that way.

“I don’t think we’re doing the public any harm. We’re open long hours,” Lambert said. “It is simply a family-friendly law. It’s just that simple.”
