We are sailing on Liberty out of Galveston in April.  Is there a convenience/grocery/liquor store close to the pier where we can stock up before embarking?  Also can we purchase wine on Sunday in Texas?

Wine can be purchased Sunday after 12 noon, but no hard liquor sold on Sundays.

Nothing close to the pier that I recall and I've done this many times. Maybe someone who lives in Galveston can give better advise.

As mentioned Liquor / package stores are closed on Sunday's in Texas. Grocery & convenience stores sell wine but only after Noon on Sunday. 

 

As to whats close to the port unfortunately not much other than your typical gas/convenience store which would have a pretty limited selection of wine. I think the only major grocery chain on the island is Kroger's which is around 4.5 miles from port.

 

 If arriving the night before your cruise it may be best to search around where you plan on staying to see what is close by to stock up or if driving I would stop off on the way down to Galveston.

 

Enjoy your cruise. :classic_smile:👍

A quick search using Google maps shows several within a mile from the port. They all appear closed on Sunday.

All liquor stores are closed in Texas on Sunday. State law allows them to be open 10 am to 9 pm, Monday through Saturday.

Welcome to Texas. 🤠

 

Of course since you're not allowed to carry on any alcoholic beverages other that the 2 bottles of wine it's really a non issue. Unless you live in Texas that is.

 

Also due to Texas liquor laws is why there's a limited selection of alcoholic drinks on board until you reach international waters.

Wine can be purchased on Sunday after 12 noon, but no hard liquor sold anywhere in Texas on Sundays. 

Plan ahead on hard liquor and wine ,  or buy wine after 12 noon on Sunday  .
