NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (KNWA/KFTA) — Northwest Arkansas residents will now be able to purchase alcohol on Sundays after the issue passed for both Rogers and Bentonville.

Early results from Election Day on November 9 indicate both cities voting favorably for the issues with Bentonville passing the vote 74.02% to 25.98% and Rogers passing 70.83% to 29.17%.

18,993 votes were cast for the issue in Rogers and 15,676 were cast in Bentonville.

This now means alcohol will be available for purchase seven days a week in these cities along with Springdale. Fayetteville still does not allow alcohol purchases on Sundays.

Keep Our Dollars Local is the organization that started this campaign and was confident that this was going to be the result all along.

“It will add to our sales tax revenue and just give us the ability to fund more projects, more roads, more parks, and more sidewalks,” Clay Kendall said.

Clay Kendall is the Chairman of Keep Our Dollars Local and says this will also benefit private sectors.

“Business owners will certainly benefit here locally as well with the increased revenues to their businesses,” Kendall said.

Folks like business owner Frank Jameson who is the general major for Spiritueux Wines and Liquors are more excited than most to see this measure increase his business revenue.

“Obviously there is going to be a major benefit is when the holidays happen on a Sunday and with that, it will be so big,” Jameson said.

Kendall continues to say this was a long time coming since they started this campaign in June.

“A lot of text messages and emails from friends saying a great job and way to get this done, something that seems like most people feel like it’s been needed for a while,” Kendall said.
