A question we often receive here at Muller Honda is if car dealerships are open on Sundays in Illinois. The answer is no; car dealerships are not open on Sunday. Illinois is one of 18 states that limit or ban car sales on Sundays.
The ban or restriction on car sales on Sundays goes back to colonial laws, often called "Blue Laws". These restrictions were originally meant to enforce religious beliefs and restrict certain activities during periods in which people were expected to attend church services. Since their inception, there have been multiple attempts to overturn these bans, which faced opposition from Illinois Car Dealerships.
There are two reasons why many auto dealers oppose being open on Sundays. The first reason is that retail employees work long hours and they appreciate knowing they at least one guaranteed day to spend with their family. While most of our sales, finance, and service associates have a day off during the week, it may be difficult to spend time with family as spouses are often at work themselves and children are in school.
The second reason for closing on Sunday is to manage operating costs. The overhead car dealerships have while open is high. Showrooms are large buildings that require heating, air conditioning, electricity, and some other operating expenses. That doesn't account for the salary of all the employees. According to figures from states that do have dealerships open on Sunday, sales are typically less than half of what the other six days of operation yield.
