I've heard on many occasions from these retailers that they would like to be able to keep their stores open on Sunday. Also, these mega-retailers have enough employees that they don't care really care about taking a break.
For the most part, we (I'm in Connecticut) don't have those kind of alcohol super stores (with some exceptions). I think if the retailers got behind the whole open on Sundays thing, the law prohibiting this would probably be repealed. It's more tax revenue for the state, so there are certainly many who support the abolition of the law. Generally, this issue comes up once every couple of years or so. So far, the law remains intact.
