RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Virginia's Alcoholic Beverage Control stores are getting in on the Black Friday tradition with extended hours and discounted prices.
Officials say the state's nearly 340 stores will offer discounts up to 50 percent off, or more, on selected items. Shopper also will get 10 percent off any purchase totaling more than $50.
Discounts will apply to everything from miniature bottles to top-shelf specialty items. Stores also will stock gift packages for a variety of liquor brands.
Most of the ABC stores will open at 9 a.m. on Friday, while some others in Williamsburg, Richmond and northern Virginia are set to open at 7 a.m.
Officials say the early morning specials will remain in effect at all stores until 3 p.m. Friday.
