Just in time to stock up for holiday parties, a new ABC store will open this week in South End.
The new 4,689 square-foot store opens at 10 a.m. Wednesday at 1426 S. Tryon St., in the spot previously occupied by Silverfly Sport near the intersection of Camden Road, according to a memo Tuesday from the Mecklenburg County Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.
The store will sell more than 1,200 types of liquor made by both local and national companies. The ABC board said in addition to seasonal gift sets and products, the new store will be selling “special, hard to find items” on its opening day.
The new ABC store will also sell to area bars, restaurants and clubs.
“Opening our newest store in Historic South End is part of our commitment to ensure that citizens don’t have to go far to shop and responsibly enjoy our wide-ranging variety of products” Mecklenburg ABC Board CEO Jason Hughes said.
