When Can Hudson Valley Liquor Stores Be Open Thanksgiving Day?
You are counting down to all of the delightful holiday events that you will be spending with your family. Congratulations, it is great that you are going to have a day (or two) off from work. While it can be a day or weeks full of work to pull it together or to travel for a meal with your family, it is worth it.
What happens when you realize that you have run all of your errands, but one? Wait, maybe you were a guest someone where, but you forgot to make one stop, what is that stop? The wine or liquor store! Yikes.
But since this is New York State, if a wine or liquor store wants to be open, they are beholden by the restrictions that are put in place by the New York State Liquor Authority. You know who they are. They are the ones who say you can't buy beer before 8 am on a Sunday or wine and liquor before noon on Sunday.
So, when can you buy wine and liquor on Thanksgiving Day in the Hudson Valley?
