You can buy just about anything you want here at the E-Z shop on Highway 58 just west of Danville.
But on Sundays, don't reach for the beer or wine.
Pittsylvania County has Sunday prohibition.

But that could soon change.
Area businesses have successfully petitioned the county to allow voters to decide whether the ban should stay or go.
