Many local stores are closed on Sundays or open after 12pm and close early around 6pm. Alcohol is not sold on sundays in the county. You will need to travel to jefferson county to purchase alcohol, so be sure to stock up on Saturday night. Restraunts get very busy between the hours of 11am and 2pm on Sundays due to church services. Avoid local hot spots such as The Pell City Steakhouse during this time.
