Those wanting to spike their eggnog this holiday need to stock up on alcohol soon.
Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control stores across the state will operate on a different schedule for the holidays, according to an ABC release.
Stores will be open on Christmas Eve for last-minute shoppers, but doors will close at 6 p.m. For early risers, the store will open an extra hour early that morning to give shoppers enough time to find the perfect distilled spirits, the release said.
Certain local stores may operate on different hours, so it is best to contact the local branch of the story before going shopping.
On Christmas Day, all ABC stores will be closed in Virginia.
For those wanting to ring in 2018 with a few drinks, ABC will remain open for normal operating hours on New Year’s Eve, according to the release. On Jan. 1, ABC stores will be closed in observance of the holiday.
Normal operating hours for ABC stores are from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. No stores will be open past 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, the release said.
Before going to the store, customers can also use ABC’s searchable list to see the brands and quantities of spirits available at each location.
Under federal law, ABC stores do not sell to shoppers under the age of 21, according to their website. Customers must carry a valid form of identification in order to make any purchase. If a customer is underage and accompanied but a adult over the age of 21, both shoppers will not be allowed to purchase alcohol, the website said.
The list can be found online as well as information on specific ABC store hours.
