Stores in Temple to begin Sunday sales

TEMPLE, Ga. -- Stores with beer and wine licenses in Temple can begin selling alcohol on Sundays.

The city council earlier this week approved a change in its ordinance to allow for Sunday sales. The Times-Georgian reports that 54 percent of voters approved of Sunday sales during the July 31 election.

Under the new ordinance, stores can sell alcohol starting after 12:30 p.m.

The city will hold another vote on Nov. 6 to decide whether restaurants should be able to serve liquor by the drink on Sundays.

"This is quite exciting," said the 53-year-old mother of three and grandmother of six. "It's an adrenaline rush."

Richards had taken her mother to a local hospital for physical therapy when she stopped by the Four Lane BP on South Park Street in Carrollton to "kill time." She purchased her lucky ticket, scratched it and said she "couldn't breathe" when she discovered she'd won.

"I called all of my family, and they didn't believe me at first," she said.

Richards said she hasn't decided how to spend her windfall.
