MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Alabama ABC Board is making changes in cooperation with the State of Emergency in effect due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

ABC staff are modifying operations to limit exposure to employees, customers and licensees. Several stores will close at the end of business hours Tuesday. Employees at stores that are closing will be temporarily reassigned to open stores in their area.

All ABC Stores that remain open will only operate from 12 p.m to 7 p.m., with the exception of wholesale only stores, whose hours will remain the same.

Other operational changes include:

  • Beginning Wednesday, all stores will operate as “over the counter” stores in order to keep as much distance between patrons and store personnel as possible. In an effort to reduce exposure ABC is limiting the number of customers allowed in the store to a maximum of five at any given time.
  • Customers will not be allowed to pull their own product. Store personnel will ask customers for their order, retrieve the product(s), and bring the item(s) to the counter for check out.
  • Customers are asked to pay for their purchase with a credit card, if possible. If cash must be used, customers should place the requested amount on the counter and store personnel will return their change in the same manner.
  • Employees will be required to wear gloves. Masks are optional, at this time.
