If you're like me, indulging in a good glass of alcohol is a necessity right now!

Experiencing stress during this time is almost a guarantee at this point. The international pandemic is still a dangerous presence in the world, the culprit behind nearly 300,000 deaths. And countless stores, including ABC, are suffering in their sales and business.

The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC), however, has decided curbside pickup is available for 39 different stores across Virginia. People can go online to www.abc.virginia.gov and select certain beverages, like wines and mixers, to pick up at a scheduled time. As long as the drinks are in inventory and you put the order in at least two hours before, you're good to go with this contactless pickup!

“Curbside service is one of many modifications we have made to our store operations to ensure customer and employee safety,” said ABC CEO Travis Hill. “Customer convenience is always a priority, and we expect to provide this service well after the need for social distancing has subsided.”
