The early indications show there’s lots of interest in Sunday morning liquor sales in Michigan.

The state of Michigan is already realizing a profit from the money spent by party stores and others to get permits to be able to participate in the new law.

A spokesperson for the Michigan Liquor Control Commission says so far they’ve issued more than 1300 permits, taking in $214,000 since December 16th. The permits allow businesses to sell alcohol from 7am to noon on Sundays, as well as Christmas Day.

However, the law is not mandatory, cities and counties can decide to opt out.
