Two Norwalk establishments seeking to sell liquor on Sundays

A pair of Norwalk businesses are seeking the legal right to sell liquor on Sunday.

City Law Director Stuart O'Hara explained the two petitions circulating regarding Sunday sales of liquor.

O'Hara clarified those petitions aren't city related.

Bar 145° and the Office Bar are gathering petition signatures to permit the Sunday sales of liquor.

"Under Ohio law, liquor cannot be sold on Sunday for retail purchases unless voters exercise a local option," he said.

O'Hara said specific precinct voters must approve the Sunday sales if those issues make it to the ballot.

O'Hara said Ohio's liquor laws are complicated.

"Beer is different than spirituous liquor," he said. "And, wine is different than liquor, though many times those two are lumped together."
