New Jersey State Legislators are considering lifting the ban on Sunday motorcycle sales but some dealers are resisting the change. On June 28, the Senate voted 38-2 to exempt motorcycle sales from the ban. The proposal would not change the ban on Sunday automobile sales.
In a report on the Press of Atlantic City the chief officer of the National Motorcycle Motorcycle Dealers Association said, ”Motorcycle sales across the United States have plummeted.” He said, “It’s a mixed bag, in that most people are open on Saturdays and they want to have a couple days off. But the way the economy is, the dealers need to be open every day of the week to make it. A lot of people aren’t open on Sunday that could be.”
The bill is pending in the Assembly, where it could see action in September
