DENVER (AP) _ Independent liquor stores are gearing up for an
extra consumer rush when it becomes legal for
them to sell liquor, wine and beer on Sundays.

Dozens of new Colorado laws go into effect this Tuesday, July
First. But consumers and retailers will have to wait for the
first Sunday of July to celebrate the liquor law change.

Ron Vaughn, owner of Argonaut Wine and Liquor, a large liquor
store in Denver, says he'll start by opening from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
on Sunday. But he says if customers want him to stay open later,
he'll do it.

Some owners of smaller stores aren't as excited about the change
because they'll be the ones who will be staffing the stores on
Sundays. Georgeann Watts, a manager at a liquor store in Pueblo,
says her store probably will only stay open on Sundays during long
holiday weekends.
