Virginia residents and tourists celebrating the three-day weekend will have more time to shop for distilled spirits during the Independence Day holiday.
Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) stores will be open until 6 p.m. on Monday, July 4. And, for the first time, Virginia ABC stores will open at noon on Sunday, July 3. This is an hour earlier than stores were previously open on Sundays, and possible because of new legislation effective July 1.
A searchable list of Virginia ABC’s 359 stores—including brands and quantities of spirits available at each location—can be found on the agency’s website at www.abc.virginia.gov.
Virginia ABC encourages those consuming alcoholic beverages for the July 4 holiday to enjoy their spirits responsibly and never drink and drive.
