“The steady rise in sales in these 31 stores around their 7 p.m. closing time demonstrated to us that customers were shopping for distilled spirits, Virginia wines, and mixers later in the day,” said Travis Hill, CEO, on the decision to extend hours. “Extending the closing to 9 p.m. should provide in-store and online customers with greater convenience and time to make their product selections.”
