Tupelo residents to enjoy a drink a little longer
Published: June 8,2014
TUPELO — Starting Friday, alcohol can be sold until one a.m. in Tupelo restaurants and bars.
The city council approved the ordinance a month ago, triggering the extended sales of beer and light wine beginning Friday.
Area residents are still weighing in on the new hours: 10 a.m. until 1 a.m. each day. Previously, the hours were 10 a.m. until midnight on Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.
Those against the extra hours may be relieved to hear that not everyone is taking advantage.
Even though alcohol sales will be extended seven days a week, many restaurants are waiting.
Romie’s Grocery manager Jed Duke tells WTVA TV the extra hour is not necessary for most days because weeknights are usually quiet.
