Springfield Liquor Store hours
Springfield, VA 22150
I'm super happy with this store because after searching, and calling many other stores, this one had the type of alcohol I was looking for. Very good selection of liquors ranging from the lowest of the low shelf (like those ones that are basically part of the floor) to the highest of the high! Then I got my tequila on! And off came the pants!
I know this isn't very PC, but this place is just straight ghetto. As an ABC store, it is owned by the state of Virginia, but it might as well be any hood-style, raggedy ass, take your life in your hands just by being here liquor store. I guess they've had too many shoplifting incidents and robberies at this location so the customer service reflects it. The store is constantly out of stock and they have moved all cordial sizes and high end products to the front behind the counter, which tells you that there are problems with theft at this store. Other ABC stores are better to shop with less hassle and suspicion.
I visited this location for the first, and last time today. I went there because this location is supposed to have a wider selection than some of the smaller stores. When I asked the middle -age bald gentleman behind the counter for a specific type of vodka, he did not have the courtesy to look up from the magazine he was flipping through; his response was "we don't have that". I guess the two customers in the store was too overwhelming for him; as was courtesy and customer service. I think the d rather drive to D.C. and speak with a knowledgeable, interested clerk than this guy!
Nice clean store, OK selection and very helpful staff.
All around happy with stores, especially this one - always clean, organized and staff is attentive... just wish they'd have more varied selections as you find in private enterprise stores in non-state run locations outside the Dominion! Prices could be better, considering they have no competition!
This particular ABC store is not my favorite. I have been in here twice and both times the person behind the counter has been kind of rude. I would only go in there if I knew exactly what I was going in for because the people behind the counter at this one weren't very nice when I asked a question.
I came here Tuesday with my boyfriend to look for my dad a birthday present and came out very pleased! Both the people behind the counter were so sweet and incredibly helpful! They didn't mind that I was basically clueless with what I was looking for and helped me pick out a good scotch for my dad! I was a bit nervous giving it to him because I was worried he wouldn't like it but he called me a few hours later to tell me how much he love the scotch! I will definatly come back to this specific location because of the service I receive! :]
I'm guessing that all Virginia ABC stores are similar, and this is the only one that I've shopped at so far. But I can say that it has a nice selection and a clean pleasant set up. The prices are what they are (it is a state store). But compared to the taxes in other parts of the metro area there are good. In all the times I've been there, there is only one thing I couldn't find, Żubrówka, but based upon Virginia ABC online catalogues, I don't think it's actually available in Virginia. As a whole, it's good enough that I won't be looking for another location any time soon.
