Fairfax County residents in West Springfield have a new retail outlet for purchasing distilled spirits and Virginia wine. The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) recently opened a store at 6230 Rolling Road in the West Springfield Shopping Center. A grand opening celebration will be held at the store at 11 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 24.
“Today, 92% of Virginians live within 10 minutes of an ABC store. But even with this reach, we heard there was a need to provide a higher level of convenience to the more than one million people 21 or older who live in Fairfax County,” said Virginia ABC Chief Executive Officer Travis Hill. “This new store is proof that we are listening.”
The public is invited to attend the ceremony, which will include brief remarks from Hill, a ribbon cutting, light refreshments and informal store tours. The first 25 customers will receive a complimentary gift.
This is the third ABC store for Springfield and 45th store in Fairfax County. The new store measures 2,320 square feet. The store’s product selection spans over 1,700 items, including 282 vodkas, 264 bourbons, 188 cordials, 164 rums, 135 scotches and 131 tequilas.
“Fairfax County has more than 650 businesses licensed to serve mixed beverages,” said Hill. “These businesses are also our customers. We are committed to providing them with excellent service.”
The store employs four sales associates, two lead sales associate, one assistant store manager and a store manager who are eager to help customers find what they are looking for and discover new products. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
