Texas: Car dealers are not allowed to sell on SundaySubmitted by Ed Thinking on Sun, 03/24/2013 - 11:11
Sean Willeford remembers going into stores on Sundays and seeing covers draped over tools, knives and other items that couldn't be bought that day.
Those covers - and the blue laws that prevented certain purchases on Sundays - are long gone for the most part.
But Willeford and others are frustrated by one of the few remaining restrictions - the ban on car dealerships being open on both Saturday and Sunday.
"From a societal standpoint, it's ludicrous," said Willeford, 43, of Arlington, who was shopping for cars recently. "I can buy almost anything I want on a Sunday except for a car.
"It's really an inconvenience more than anything."
