Plaza Midwood’s first ABC store in years opens Thursday morning in the old Family Dollar space next to Healthy Home Market.
The 4,900 square-foot store at 1332-A Central Ave. will carry more than 1,600 varieties of spirits, including national, local and craft brands, according to a statement from the Mecklenburg County ABC Board.
The store opens to the public at 10 a.m.
This technically isn’t the neighborhood’s first ABC store. There was once one in the space nearby that’s currently occupied by Elizabeth Billiards, and it closed over 20 years ago, the county ABC board says.
The portion of Plaza Midwood where the new liquor store is located is seeing a boom in new retail.
Nearby, the building formerly occupied by the Junior League of Charlotte WearHouse is being renovated to make way for restaurants and other retail, for instance. A Five Guys Burgers and Fries took the place of J&J Beauty Supply next to Healthy Home Market. A Roasting Company restaurant is also opening soon in the building.
