Cashiers Arrested Pt 1 –

In the 1960’s and 70’s, retail stores in North Dakota were not allowed to be open for business on Sunday. The law was referred to as the Sunday Blue Law. On December 5, 1965 … the Tempo store in the Arrowhead Shopping Center decided to open on Sunday and challenge the “Blue Law”. Hundreds of people, men, women and children were there to witness what was going to happen. The spectators jammed the aisles waiting for the police to arrive. When they finally did they arrested the two cashiers on duty. The replacement cashiers were promptly arrested and escorted out of the store as soon as they took their posts. After the last cashier had been “pinched” the store manager announced that the store was closing as he was out of cashiers. One spectator was heard to remark: Nuts! Now what am I going to do…. Go home and watch the Vikings lose again, I guess… which is what they did … the Vikings lost again
