In fiscal year 2016, the store—one of three in Fauquier County—sold nearly 17,000 gallons of products generating just over $1.3 million in gross sales.
“The expansion project will enhance the store’s inviting atmosphere to make the shopping experience even more enjoyable for both long-time customers and patrons who haven’t previously explored our selection of products,” said Director of Retail Operations Wilson Jones.
During the extended closure, customers can shop nearby for distilled spirits at ABC stores located at Warrenton Village Shopping Center, 175 West Lee Highway, in Warrenton; 106 Washington Street in Middleburg, and The Marketplace at Madison Crescent, 8038 and 8044 Crescent Park Drive, in Gainesville.
