The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Authority store at 7028 Woodlake Commons Loop in Midlothian’s Woodlake Commons Shopping Center will close at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day), for expansion and remodeling. The store is expected to reopen in November.
The 3,000 square-foot store, which opened in 2005, will receive new shelving, counters and flooring. The project also includes expansion of the space to 4,240 square feet, a 41 percent increase. This expanded area will allow for a wider selection of products for customers. In fiscal year 2018, the store sold more than 209,000 bottles and generated approximately $3.5 million in gross sales.
“After 13 years of serving a busy and constantly growing metropolitan area, the store needs an upgrade,” said Chief Retail Operations Officer Jeff Reeder. “The expanded store will provide a more efficient and pleasant shopping experience for our Midlothian customers.”
During the closure, customers can shop for distilled spirits at the following nearby ABC stores:
•13113 Rittenhouse Drive at The Village at Swift Creek in Midlothian
