Bill Would Allow PA Car Dealers to Open One Sunday a Month

State Sen. Mike Stack has once again introduced legislation that would allow car dealerships to be open one Sunday a month.

“Car dealerships have been struggling in this economy, and it just seems archaic that they must be closed on Sundays,” Stack said. “Senate Bill 1067 would allow them to open one Sunday a month to provide them with one more opportunity to bring in customers. While they won’t be allowed to open every Sunday, it’s a step in the right direction for dealerships and consumers.”

Sunday is the second busiest shopping day of the week. Additionally, with the success of the federal “CARS trade-in program, more popularly known as Cash for Clunkers,” Stack said he believes that more consumers are now thinking about purchasing cars.

“The ‘Cash for Clunkers’ program has shown us that consumers are clearly eager to seek out a good value on a vehicle,” Stack said. “This legislation is simply a consumer-friendly move that can have a positive impact on the economy.”

Stack introduced similar legislation in the 2005-06 legislative session.

Senate Bill 1067 is now in the Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure committee.
