Several people have asked me about extended hours for area ABC stores on Black Friday.
Virginia ABC announced earlier this month its stores will join other retailers by offering discounted prices and early morning specials the day after Thanksgiving.
Normal ABC store shopping hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., but for those of you who want to take advantage of the Black Friday alcohol sales in the midst of all that family time, here are the local store hours given to me by a Virginia ABC spokeswoman.
Most ABC stores in the Roanoke and New River Valley area will open early at 9 am with the exception of these few which will open at 8 a.m.: Cave Spring Shopping Center (Brambleton Ave.) in Roanoke, Town Square Shops (Rutgers St.) in Roanoke, Salem and Blacksburg.
Stores in Martinsville, Pulaski, Galax, Wythville and Hillsville will also open at 8 a.m.
