The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) store located at 4709-B Lee Highway in Arlington is closed this week for renovations, but will be open for business by the weekend.
With the remodel, customers can expect a brand-new floor for the retail section of the 3,900-square-foot shop. The renovation required the store to close Saturday at 9 p.m., and it is slated to reopen this Friday, March 3, by 10 a.m.
“As part of its commitment to excellent customer service, Virginia ABC continually updates stores to provide a more pleasant shopping experience,” said Virginia ABC Director of Retail Operations Wilson Jones. “I think customers will be pleased with the improvement.”
While the Arlington location is closed, customers can shop at nearby Virginia ABC stores located at 2507 N. Harrison St., 2955A S. Glebe Road and 2940 Columbia Pike, all in Arlington.
