SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) -- You soon might be able to buy a six-pack on Sundays in Spanish Fork.

City council members have instructed the city attorney to draw up the necessary ordinance, which would still need approval.

Albertsons is the only Spanish Fork grocery store open on Sundays.

The store averages 73 beer sales a day. Using that figure, store officials say they lose nearly 15-hundred dollars every Sunday they can't sell beer.

That equals about 78-thousand dollars a year in lost beer sales. And, store officials say, that doesn't even account for all the snacks that go along with the beer.

Albertsons presented the council with a petition also signed by nine convenience stores asking they be allowed to sell beer on Sundays.
