Should businesses be open on Sundays?

Should businesses operate on Sundays? The bible says to remember the Sabbath, and keep it holy. We are supposed to work six days a week and rest on the seventh. Does this mean that everyone should honor the same day as the Sabbath? Maybe not but we all should have a day during the week when we rest. Many states used to observe blue laws, which prohibited many commercial activities on Sundays in honor of the Sabbath. Now, most states have repealed these laws. Do you think that the repeal of these laws interferes with our ability to observe the Sabbath? It seems like all of our time is allocated between our vocation and our personal responsibilities, with little time remaining to rest. If businesses were closed on Sundays, would more of us be inclined to rest?
