Alcohol Sales on Sundays in Chapel Hill
The Chapel Hill Town Council voted on Sept. 6, 2017, to allow Sunday morning sales of beer and unfortified wine at retail stores for off-premises consumption in Chapel Hill, starting immediately.
Chapel Hill is among several North Carolina municipalities that have approved restaurants and hotels to sell mixed drinks, and for stores to sell beer and wine as early as 10 a.m. Sundays. This comes after state legislation allowing local decisions on the issue was signed into law in June 2017.
The Council had voted to allow the sale of alcohol in restaurants back in July. It delayed the decision on alcohol sales in stores until September to allow for greater public input on the question.
