Blue Laws debate heats up again

As the debate heats up again to get rid of Blue Laws before the Super Bowl arrives, some shop owners in Bergen County are blasting the idea.

Delores Franch, who owns a western apparel store in Rutherford, says she is excited New Jersey landed the game, but does not want to have her shop open on Sundays. She says she likes being able to have Sundays as a day to spend with her family.

The owner of Sara's Children's Boutique agrees. She says that even if the law is changed, she doesn't want to have her store open on Sundays. She also says that Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) never campaigned about changing Blue Laws when he was on the trail in the county.
