SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah City Council approved changes to the Savannah Alcohol Ordinance in Thursday's meeting.

The measure allows for Sunday package sales of beer, wine and distilled spirits, which was approved in a voter referendum on Nov. 8 election. The changes go into effect immediately.

Retailers selling alcohol by the package will now be allowed to sell on Sundays between 12:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. It is up to each business to decide whether it will do so, according to the city of Savannah news release.

As of now, 173 businesses in Savannah now have the option to sell alcohol on Sunday.

State law does not allow package sales of liquor on Christmas, which falls on a Sunday this year, but package sales of beer and wine will be allowed on Christmas Sunday, according to the release.
