Customers purchasing distilled spirits, Virginia wines and mixers at the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) store in Fairfax Court will visit a new space starting Jan. 5.
The location change from the current space in 11260 James Swart Circle in Fairfax Court to the Lee Plaza Shopping Center at 11725 Lee Highway, Suite A-5, both in Fairfax, covers a short distance and offers easier access for customers traveling on Lee Highway, a major Northern Virginia thoroughfare.
To complete the move, this Fairfax ABC store will close at 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 1, and reopen in the new location at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 5. During the closure, customers may make purchases at nearby stores including those at Courthouse Plaza Shopping Center, 10308 Willard Way; Pender Village Shopping Center, 3903 Fair Ridge Drive; Boulevard Marketplace, 10140 Fairfax Boulevard and at University Mall, 10685 Braddock Road, all in Fairfax.
The location change allows for a refresh of the store’s interior by featuring new displays for its special items.
Operating hours at the store will remain the same: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
A searchable list of Virginia ABC’s 369 stores—including brands and quantities of spirits available at each location—can be found on the agency’s website.
