A November vote to abolish blue laws in Statesboro, and subsequent amendment to the city’s alcohol code, will for the first time allow residents to purchase alcohol on Sundays beginning this week. Starting at noon Sunday, beer, wine and all other spirits will no longer be off-limits to restaurant patrons and local owners are opening doors and extending their warmest invitations to the public. Grocery stores and convenience stores also will be able sell beer and wine on Sundays.“I am really excited about it,” said Jim Lanier, owner of Locos Grill and Pub.
