RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) — The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) now offers the convenience of curbside pickup for online orders at 370 stores across the commonwealth.
After placing an online order, customers can select contactless pickup of spirits, Virginia wines, and mixers from ABC stores the same day the order is placed, as long as the selected products are available in the store.
Customers can use the curbside service by following these steps:
- Visit Virginia ABC’s website and select a store that offers curbside pickup (look for a car icon).
- Place an order online and pay with a credit/debit card.
- Follow the prompts to schedule a pickup time at least two hours in advance.
- Arrive at the scheduled pickup time and park in the designated area. Call the store.
- Show a valid ID to the retail associate to receive the order. No signature is required.
Virginia ABC introduced curbside service in select stores on April 29.
Currently, 96% of ABC’s 388 stores offer curbside pickup. Since the service began, more than 40% of online customers have opted for curbside pickup.
“As the sole retailer of distilled spirits in Virginia, we’re pleased to include curbside pickup as a convenient and contactless way for customers to purchase products from our stores. We will continue to offer this service to our customers well after the need for social distancing has subsided. Implementation of this new service is a testament to the hard work of employees across the organization and just the latest example of our dedication to keeping our staff and customers safe while providing excellent service.”Travis Hill, ABC Chief Executive Officer
At this time, all Virginia ABC stores continue to operate at a reduced schedule: 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
