UPDATE: Tupelo gets Sunday liquor OK

TUPELO – The Mississippi Tax Commission today signed and entered an order allowing Tupelo to sell wine and liquor on Sunday.
It goes into effect immediately, meaning people will be able to purchase the alcoholic beverages this Sunday. Hours are set from 1-10 p.m.
City leaders had made the request to the Tax Commission in December, just months after having passed a local ordinance allowing beer and light wine sales from 1-10 p.m. Sundays.
Commissioners signed the order around 2 p.m.
