No Sunday car sales

To the Editor:

I think car dealers should be closed on Sundays.

Large dealerships and small dealerships should be closed so that their employees can have a day of rest and relaxation with their families.

It sounds easy to open on Sundays, but it really isn’t. A dealership would need a couple of salesmen around all day in the chance that someone will buy a car. Then they need a receptionist to answer the phones and direct people around the dealership. They would need someone to type the bill of sale, tax papers, vehicle registration, etc., so that would be another employee needed there.

Now, once the car is bought, you would need the person to wash the car and get it ready to be taken off the lot. All these people cost money, and the smaller dealership probably wouldn’t even make enough sales to cover its salaries.

All these people would be taken away from their families for a day when they should have it off. I think the law needs to stay exactly how it is. People can look at cars on Sunday with the dealership closed, and then buy it Monday, if that’s what they want to do.

Keep the dealerships closed.
