Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Proposes Permanent 10 P.M. Curfew For Alcohol Purchases
By: Ashe Schow, Daily Wire, May 27, 2021:
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Wednesday proposed a permanent curfew for alcohol purchases, just days after hundreds of protesters gathered outside her home to express their displeasure with her job performance.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the proposal is part of a “sweeping pandemic relief package” proposed by the mayor, and “would ban sales of packaged liquor products between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. every day except Sunday, when they’d start at 8 a.m.
As the Sun-Times reported, those who sell alcohol in the city aren’t happy with the proposal:
Ali Thabet, owner of Ashland Market in Noble Square, said the plan feels like a “low blow” to liquor stores that have struggled through the pandemic. Should it pass the City Council, Thabet said he would likely have to cut staff.
“It’s going to drive all the business out of Chicago and just kill smaller businesses,” he said of the plan. “It will hurt us for the long run.”
