The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce commissioned an economic impact study on Sunday alcohol sales, and it estimated a total impact of $10.9 million in total output, including $2.2 million in earnings and 171 newly created jobs. The monetary output is an annual number while the jobs number is aggregate.
The Chamber worked with Dr. B. Brian Motii, an associate professor of economics at the University of Montevallo’s M.E. Stephens College of Business to study the economic impact of repealing the county’s blue laws.
