RICHMOND, Va. — For some people the perfect Christmas gift does not come in a box or bag, but in a bottle.

If you know someone who would rather see Pappy Van Winkle or George T. Stagg under the Christmas tree than anything Santa could deliver — listen up. The Virginia ABC is taking part in the Black Friday shopping craze.

“On Friday, November 28, only, all stores will offer 10 percent off any purchase totaling $50 or more (pretax) with lottery and gift cards excluded. The discount applies to regular sales and does not apply to licensee purchases,” the Virginia ABC announced Friday. “In addition, as part of the agency’s 80th anniversary celebration, Virginia ABC will offer a one-day opportunity to register for a special gift card drawing.”

Of the people who register on Black Friday, Virginia ABC will choose 80 winners. Those winners get an $80 Virginia ABC gift card. The winners will be drawn on December 17.

“This is a unique opportunity for our retail customers to celebrate our anniversary with us,” Virginia ABC Chairman Jeff Painter said in a statement. “And for individuals interested in trading up to more premium brands, stocking up for holiday parties or getting gifts for friends, family and coworkers, Black Friday is a great time to purchase quality items at reduced prices.”

Virginia ABC stores are closed on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 27, Christmas Day, Thursday, December 25 and New Year’s Day, Thursday, January 1, 2015.
