Liquor stores are reminding Hoosiers to stock up soon for any New Year's Eve celebrations, because their doors will be closed for the big day.

If you're looking to add some extra flavor to your New Year's Eve party on Sunday, then you may want to consider making a run to the liquor store over the next two days.

IN residents planning to serve alcohol during New Year's Eve festivities will need to stock up in advance this year.

If you live in the Hoosier State, you won't be able to buy alcohol for carryout on December 31st because it falls on a Sunday this year.


Some state lawmakers say they are in favor of legalizing Sunday alcohol sales, but the legislative session doesn't begin until Jan 3, 2018.

A study commission was created by lawmakers earlier this month to review the laws.

The law only applies to businesses with full liquor licenses, so certain restaurants or breweries will not be able to sell past midnight depending on their license.

Semro said sales were good for Bridge Liquors leading up to Christmas, but he said on Christmas Eve last Sunday, people were still knocking on their doors.
