Virginia ABC Marks Milestone with Opening of 401st Store in Leesburg at Compass Creek

In Leesburg, Virginia, the community came together to celebrate the opening of a new Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) store, marking a significant addition to the Compass Creek shopping area. This event, held on March 19, 2024, featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the launch of the 2,000 square-foot retail space, which is now home to over 900 different products, catering to the diverse tastes and preferences of Leesburg residents.

Located at 555 Compass Point Plaza SE, this store is the third ABC location in the Leesburg area, joining the ranks as the 401st outlet across the state. The expansion of Virginia ABC stores is part of a broader strategy to enhance accessibility and convenience for customers, reflecting a positive trend in Virginia’s retail landscape.

Tom Kirby, the interim CEO of Virginia ABC, emphasized the broader implications of new stores like this one, highlighting their contribution to the state’s economy. “Revenues generated from new stores like this one help make Virginia the best place to live, work, and raise a family,” Kirby stated.

With hours of operation from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, the store aims to offer flexibility and convenience for shoppers.
