Bergen County Wants to Keep Their Blue Laws, or Do They? [POLL]

Once upon a time in New Jersey you could not shop on Sundays due to blue laws that now only exist in Bergen County. That is until Governor Christie suspended them in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

The laws, enacted in 1962, prohibit the sale of various items on Sundays, including clothing, furniture, appliances and building materials. Once observed statewide, Bergen County is the only area of the state that has not voted to do away with the restrictions.

 

Apparently Bergen County feels so strongly about their Blue Laws that County Executive Kathleen A. Donovan will ask Gov. Chris Christie to lift his suspension which will once again close the stores

Really? In 2012? With this economy, we need to prevent businesses in New Jersey from making money on a day when people are off to spend it? How do you feel about that? Would you like to see blue laws in your town? Please take our poll.
