The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) store located at 125 Lucy Lane in Waynesboro will close at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 26, for renovations but will be open for business by the next weekend.
With the remodel, customers can expect a brand-new floor for the retail section of the 2,900-square-foot location. The renovation required the store to close for the week, but it will reopen at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 1.
“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 Waynesboro location is closed, customers can shop at nearby Virginia ABC stores located at 2576 Stuarts Draft Highway in Stuarts Draft or 32 Windward Drive in Fishersville.
