The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) retail location at 34-A Broad Street Road in the Broadview Shopping Center in Goochland County will close at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, for a modernization project. The 2,000 square-foot store, which opened in 2003, will get new shelving, counters and flooring and a fresh coat of paint as part of the project. The store is tentatively scheduled to reopen at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10.
In fiscal year 2017, the store sold 24,463 gallons of products generating almost $2 million in gross sales, a 14 percent increase over the previous year’s sales.
“The modernization of this store will provide customers with a refreshed and inviting atmosphere to create even more enjoyable shopping experiences 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 closure for the project, customers can shop nearby for distilled spirits at Virginia ABC stores located at 3450-3452 Pump Road in Short Pump Crossing Shopping Center; 2288 John Rolfe Parkway in John Rolfe Commons Shopping Center; and 11367 Nuckols Road in The Town Center at Twin Hickory, all in Henrico County.
A searchable list of Virginia ABC’s 370 stores—including brands and quantities of spirits available at each location—can be found on the agency’s newly updated website (www.abc.virginia.gov).
