The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority has a seven-year lease to operate a store at 45 Main St. in Warrenton.
It is a beautiful, historic and vibrant town. We look forward to working as a partner alongside other retailers committed to supporting this much-beloved town center and to contributing to Warrenton’s thriving economy.
— Virginia ABC CEO Travis Hill
A new, state-run liquor store — Fauquier’s fourth — will open Thursday, May 20, at 45 Main St. in Warrenton.

“We are excited to join the retail community of Warrenton with the opening of our newest store on Main Street,” Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority CEO Travis Hill said. “It is a beautiful, historic and vibrant town. We look forward to working as a partner alongside other retailers committed to supporting this much-beloved town center and to contributing to Warrenton’s thriving economy.”

Warrenton’s second ABC store will stock 2,000 items, including 361 bourbons, 179 vodkas, 200 rums, 174 cordials and 172 tequilas.

Open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, the store has a manager and three sales associates.

The state agency rents the 2,290-square-foot space from Jim Carson, who moved his land planning and surveying company, Carson Land Consultants to the building’s second floor in November. ABC has a seven-year lease for the space, just west of the post office.

The town has an ABC store in the Warrenton Village shopping center on West Lee Highway.

Warrenton’s first ABC store operated at 43 Culpeper St., until it moved to the shopping center several decades ago.

The alcohol authority also operates stores in Marshall and Bealeton.
