Although this poll is unscientific, it does appear to indicate that people like the idea of a package store, or two, opening up in Loganville.

It appears that the demand is there. Now there needs to be a supply. Now that Sunday sales are allowed people are simply going to neighboring communities to make their purchase. I would just as soon see us having the store(s) here in town & keeping the tax revenue. From the "for what it's worth" dept of a non-drinker.
