LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) - It won't be in time for Christmas, but shoppers in Lexington County may soon be able to shop longer and earlier.

The county council wants to suspend Sunday blue laws. The final vote is this Thursday.

The change could potentially affect every retail store in Lexington County the day after Christmas. 

County leaders will make a decision on Thursday. If it passes, Columbiana Centre Mall says its stores will open at noon.
