New ABC Store Opens in Front Royal

  • 344th ABC store has opened in Front Royal
  • Grand opening celebration planned for August 15 at 9:30 a.m.

In an effort to expand its retail network and better serve its customers, Virginia ABC has opened a new store in the Crooked Run Center at 115 Crooked Run Plaza in Front Royal. Although the store began servicing customers on July 23, a grand opening is scheduled 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

This second Front Royal location was strategically chosen to meet market demands and better serve the growing population. The next nearest ABC store is in the Royal Plaza Shopping Center.

The Front Royal store measures 1,960 square feet, carries approximately 1,087 items and will employ six people -- a manager and five sales associates.

“We're eager to welcome customers, answer their questions, fulfill special requests and, ultimately, adjust the store’s product mix to accommodate their tastes,” said Wilson Jones, director of retail operations.

Regular store hours will be 10 a.m.–9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1–6 p.m. Sunday. The first 25 customers will receive a free, non-alcoholic gift.

ABC has opened 80 stores in the last 10 years and plans to open 20 more in the next three years. Currently 98 percent of Virginia’s population resides within 10 minutes of an ABC store.

The Crooked Run Center store is the second store in Front Royal and the 344th store in the ABC network.
