Worried about running out of libations for your Independence Day cookout?

There’s no need to fret because Virginia ABC stores will be open at noon July 4.

However, you’ll be out of luck if you run out of booze after 6 p.m., because that’s when ABC stores will close for the day instead of the current Saturday closing times.

All stores will be open from noon until their regularly scheduled closing time Friday (July 3) and Sunday (July 5).

Here’s a list of the ABC stores in the Historic Triangle. Remember, they close at 6 p.m. Saturday.
