Time change extends some alcohol sales an hour

PORTLAND, Ore. - Oregonians will officially move their clocks back one hour at 2:00 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 3 as Daylight Saving Time ends. Businesses that serve alcohol until 2:00 or 2:30 a.m. -- such as nightclubs, bars, taverns and grocery stores will gain an extra hour of alcohol sales when 2:00 a.m. becomes 1:00 a.m.  

Some businesses lose a half hour of liquor sales in the spring when Daylight Saving Time begins, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission noted.
