The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Authority store at 356 Garrisonville Road, Suite 123, in Stafford’s Doc Stone Commons Shopping Center will be closed through mid-July for an expansion and remodeling project.
The 2,940 square foot Stafford store will close at 9 p.m. on Monday, May 21. The project will include expansion of the space to 4,140 square feet, a 41 percent increase. This expanded area will allow for a wider selection of products for customers. In fiscal year 2017, the store sold more than 270,000 products and generated just over $4.4 million in gross sales.
“After 17 years of serving a busy and constantly growing area, the store needs an upgrade,” said Chief Retail Operations Officer Jeff Reeder. “The remodeled store will provide a more efficient and pleasant shopping experience for our Stafford customers.”
During the closure, customers can shop nearby for distilled spirits at ABC stores located at 2757 Jefferson Davis Highway in the Aquia Park Shopping Center in Stafford and 560 Celebrate Virginia Parkway in the Celebrate Virginia North Shopping Center in Fredericksburg.
For customer convenience, a searchable list of Virginia ABC’s 371 retail outlets—including brands and quantities of spirits available at each location—can be found at www.abc.virginia.gov. Customers may also order spirits online for pick-up in the store of their choice.
