While purchasing some spirits from my local ABC store, located in the Food Lion shopping center in Cape Charles, I was alerted by the staff that I had better stock up. The store will be closing for two weeks to undergo significant renovations.
The upward trend in Eastern Shore tourism is benefiting most retail outlets, including our local ABC. According to data from Virginia ABC, the Cape Charles location accounted for over18,000 gallons of products, generating over $1 million in sales for the 2017 fiscal year. Sale are up 11 percent compared to last year.
The store will be getting upgraded shelving and new floors.
The Cape Charles store is scheduled to reopen Monday, Oct. 16.
