(Updated at 2:25 p.m. on 2/21/2023) Great Falls will soon have its own Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) store.

The wine and liquor business plans to open at Great Falls Center (9843 Georgetown Pike).

Patrick Kane, a spokesperson for the ABC, told FFXnow now that a firm opening date has not yet been determined.

The store is a little over 2,000 square feet in size, Kane said.

Virginia ABC determines new locations of stores based on the location’s demographics, traffic patterns, rental rate and population density.

“It also considers the distance of a location to existing stores, sales at those stores, tenant mix at the shopping center, and the accessibility and deliverability to the location,” the authority says on its website.

The center includes tenants like Bollywood Bistro, Starbucks, Subway, Great Falls Barbershop and Long & Foster Realtors. An animal hospital and pho bar are also slated to open soon at the center.

Virginia ABC has more than 390 stores throughout the state, according to the website. This will be the only location in Great Falls, whose residents currently have to travel to Reston or the Tysons area to find a store.
