Why Aren’t Car Dealerships Open on Sunday in Houston?

Closed sign

If you’re from the Katy and Spring area, then you may notice that there are not a lot of car dealerships open on Sunday in Houston. While this local norm may surely be a disadvantage to some weekend car shoppers looking to get an up-close look at the vehicles they’re interested in, drivers can continue their car search online from the comfort of their own home. Find out more about this unique local rule from John Eagle Acura. 

Texas Blue Laws

The main reason there are no car dealerships open on Sundays in Houston dates back to the “blue laws” that were enacted across the state of Texas since colonial times. These laws prohibited the sale of many goods including alcohol, automobiles, and much more on Sundays so locals could attend religious services. While it originated for religious purposes, it translated to a secular day of rest for all. Since then, many blue laws have been ended, although Texas still prohibits the sale of alcohol and cars on Sundays so workers can enjoy the day off with their families. This blue law also enables dealers to only be open one day of the weekend, so they can choose to be open Sunday, but cannot be open on Saturday as well.
