ABC temporarily closing 41 stores

The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board is temporarily closing 41 stores around the state in response to increasing COVID-19 cases.

“Closing some of our stores will provide the greatest amount of employee/customer  protection, while ensuring maximum productivity and efficiency,” ABC Board  Administrator Mac Gipson said in a written statement Monday. “Our primary concern is the health and well-being of our  employees and patrons.” 

In March, the board closed 78 retail locations and made operational and staffing changes in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Stores reopened as infection numbers  improved.  

According to the press release, staffing the stores recently has been a challenge because of the virus.

The closures will start Saturday when stores end the business day. They’re expected to reopen in late February or early March. About 79 employees at the closed stores will be reassigned to others, the board said.

*A previous version of this story incorrectly listed ABC stores that would be closed. It has been updated to show the list of ABC stores remaining open, not closed.
