A second ABC store will soon be operating in Alexander County.Taylorsville has had a store since 1963 but within days a store will open in the Bethlehem Community.
Shortly after the ABC referendum passed in 2016, a feasibility study was conducted by Creative Economic Development Consulting. The study was presented to the Alexander County Board of Commissioners. The findings indicated that Bethlehem could support an ABC operation despite a store just a few miles away in Hickory. An Alexander County ABC Board was created.
The store will be in the Bethlehem Village Shopping Center on Highway 127.
