The Mecklenburg County ABC Board operates all of the retail spirits stores in Mecklenburg County. A common misnomer is that our stores are "state stores", but they are not. The North Carolina ABC Commission establishes the prices we (and all the other local ABC Boards) charge for our products, but each individual ABC Board makes decisions on how it chooses to retail to the public - including the extent of the selection of products offered, what the stores look like (inside and out), and where those stores are located.
Our goals are to provide our customers clean, convenient locations offering an excellent selection of spirits, providing outstanding customer service, and ensuring we do not serve any one who is under 21 years of age or impaired. Our sales associates receive extensive training on how to better serve you. Specifically, our associates receive instruction in Customer Service, Product Knowledge, Controlling the Sale of Alcohol, as well as career-oriented classes.
