Residents React to Local ABC Store Closings
Thursday, we told you 15 ABC liquor stores are set to close in the state.
Two of those stores are in the Wiregrass. One on North Oates Street in Dothan and the other in Abbeville.
The closings are due to the state budget cuts..
$5. 5 million were transferred from the ABC board for other operations. While some don't approve the closings, others are in favor of it.
"Cutting liquor stores is a better alternative than cutting grants and other funding to like government funding that may help the elderly or welfare or other type of social programs," says Antonio Benford.
The closings are expected happen in three to six months.
