Sunday Arrival / Beer Purchase

I saw a thread that Liquor Stores can now open on Sundays. However, I'm having trouble figuring out which ones are actually doing that. Does anyone know of one that is open near Seven Mile Beach? We will be staying at Coralstone Club and would like to purchase some beer the day we arrive.

I believe, on Sundays, beer must be purchased by the case. We bought ours at Anchors .

Things are changing. Some (not all) liquor stores are now open on Sundays and I don't think they are limited to selling by the case.

There was a recent discussion about this on Aunt Annie and so far there doesn't seem to be any resolution, but at least the authorities are looking into it:

More updated article:

"A dozen liquor stores and gas stations have been granted licenses to sell alcohol on Sundays under a new licensing regime."

The Ask Auntie article is from June 3, 2018; so apparently there are still some kinks being worked out; but it apears that the authorities are aware of the issues and will get it straightened out soon.

If you run into problems, you should still be able to buy smaller quantities of alcohol on Sunday afternoons at the Anchors store at the Cayman Islands Yacht Club.

Correction: I meant "Ask Auntie" in my post above, not "Annie"!

Cm. That was clever. If you are here for a week and staying in a condo buying a case may not matter. The gas station on the corner by Kirks Supermarket has been licensed for years not sure if it is only cases. Also The Wine Tasting Room might be able to deliver the day before and have the mgr hold it at the condo for you. They make deliveries to Watercolours which is nearby. Mario and Tina are awesome. www.caymanwineboutique.com.
