Time change means extra hour for alcohol sales

By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Drinkers will have an extra hour to purchase alcoholic beverages early Sunday.

The Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission announced Friday it will allow the sale of alcoholic beverages on Sunday to continue until what would be 3 a.m. if not for the time change.
