West Virginians can now buy distilled spirits any day of the week, under a new law signed Thursday by Gov. Jim Justice, which repeals the state's ban on Sunday liquor sales.

Calhoun County is the only county in WV that has voted down retail liquor stores.

Previously, consumers in West Virginia were only allowed to buy beer and wine at retail stores on Sundays.

Under the new law, distilled spirits will be permitted for sale in retail stores on Sundays after 1 p.m., except for Easter and Christmas.

Lobbyists with the Distilled Spirits Council said Sunday liquor sales could generate more than $1 million in new state revenue if all stores open that are eligible under the law.

43 U.S. states now allow liquor sales on Sunday.
