The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) retail location at 106 Washington St. in Middleburg will close at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, for a modernization project. The 2,862-square-foot store will get a fresh new look with the installation of new store counters, shelves and other interior upgrades as part of the project. The store is tentatively scheduled to reopen at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22.
In fiscal year 2017, the store sold 8,466 gallons of products generating almost $1 million in gross sales, a four 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 4199-B Winchester Road in the Marshall Shopping Center, Marshall; 5331 Merchants View Square in the Dominion Valley Market Square Shopping Center, Haymarket; and 42015 Village Center Plaza in the Stone Ridge Village Center, Stone Ridge.
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).
