Customers shopping for distilled spirits in Locust Grove can look forward to a brand-new retail experience as the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) prepares to expand and remodel the store located at 5390-A Lyndon Drive. The store will close on Friday, April 22, at 9 p.m. and remain closed for five weeks as it undergoes major renovations.
New flooring, shelving, ceiling tiles, counter tops and a fresh coat of paint will enhance the new space, which will increase by 800 square feet.
“The refreshed store will offer a more robust shopping experience and increased product selection in most categories, including rum, vodka and bourbon,” said Wilson Jones, director of retail operations. “Recent growth in sales and increased customer demand at this location have made expansion of the Locust Grove store a priority. The store remodel underscores our commitment to providing excellent customer service and a welcoming shopping environment.”
While the Lyndon Drive location is closed, customers can shop at nearby Virginia ABC stores located at 4185 Plank Road, 560 Celebrate Virginia Parkway and 1416 Carl D. Silver Parkway in Fredericksburg. Shoppers may also visit Virginia ABC’s website at www.abc.virginia.gov to browse favorite distilled spirits and Virginia wines and order select products for delivery to a local store.
