It was explained by my fellow students that the stores were closed because of the "Blue Laws." Sundays were to be a day of rest for everyone, and subsequently businesses were closed on that day. People didn't shop; they went to the park, went to church, or otherwise just annoyed one another.
I revisited that town on a Sunday last summer, and saw that many of the businesses were closed. I don't think that it was blue laws so much as obamanonomics.
To be certain, you mean stores completely closed down-out of business?
