Sunday Car Sale Ban in NJ Would Still Apply for Bergen County

New Jersey Assemblyman  Wayne P. DeAngelo (D-Mercer, Middlesex) has introduced a bill that would allow dealers to sell automobiles on Sunday, but that wouldn’t apply in Bergen County, where the Blue Laws ban most shopping on Sundays.

Under current state law, buying or selling motor vehicles on Sundays is a disorderly persons offense.

While DeAngelo says the bill would help busy consumers, James Appleton, president of the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers, sent a letter to DeAngelo that said the coalition’s 515 members oppose the bill.

Appleton argued that being open an extra day would reduce earnings and that online car shopping meant dealers didn’t have to be open six days a week. DeAngelo said New Jersey residents are leaving the state on Sundays to buy vehicles.
