By Chris Sardelli

Now that the blue laws that restricted retailers from selling many goods until after 1:30 p.m. on Sunday have been repealed here, businesses and organizations are wondering how it will affect them.

Ann Curtsinger, co-manager of Wal-Mart in Lancaster, said she’s not sure how the repeal will affect sales at her location.

“I don’t know how quickly it will create more jobs, it’s really hard to gauge,” she said.

In terms of increased sales, she expects there to be a delayed reaction as residents become adjusted to the new hours.
