Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Liquor stores in Minnesota will remain closed on Sundays.

The Minnesota House soundly rejected an effort to let them open by a vote of 106-21.

Supporters said consumers should be allowed to buy liquor in stores on Sundays because they can buy drinks in bars that day.

Opponents said some liquor store owners don't think it would increase sales enough to cover overhead costs.
