MYFOXNY.COM -

State owned liquor stores in Virginia don't want to miss out on Black Friday shoppers so they are extending hours and offering door-buster sales.

Some stores will open as early as 7 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving and offer early morning price specials.

Liquor stores in the state are controlled by the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

"This is a unique opportunity for our retail customers to purchase quality items at reduced prices," ABC Chairman J. Neal Insley said in a statement. "For individuals interested in trading up to more premium brands for themselves or as gifts, the discount will help offset the higher cost."


Highlights

•ABC stores will open early at 9 a.m.
•Discounts of 25 to 50% on selected items
•Additional 10% discount off purchases totaling $50


Most of Virginia ABC's 338 retail stores will open at 9 a.m. Five stores in Williamsburg, Richmond and Northern Virginia will open at 7 a.m.

All stores will offer a 25 to 50 percent reduction on some items as well as ten percent off any purchase totaling at least $50.

Early morning specials will remain in effect Nov. 23 at all stores until 3 p.m.

"ABC encourages Virginians to drink responsibly. As the holiday season approaches, we should be especially mindful of this," Insley added.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
