A currently vacant spot along Maple Avenue will soon be selling alcohol instead of armoires.
The relocation will let ABC expand, Dawn Eischen, a Virginia ABC spokesperson, told Tysons Reporter.
“This location will allow us to provide a wider selection of products, meet market demands and better serve our customers,” Eischen said.
Eischen said that the current store (436 Maple Ave. E.) is 4,600 square feet, while the former Posh! space is 6,000 square feet.
Posh!, a furniture retailer, left its longtime Maple Avenue home early last year, with the owner partially blaming traffic, parking and development woes. The store moved to 200 Dominion Road NE late last year.
The prominent storefront was one of several vacant spaces that the Town of Vienna has been working to fill with tenants, along with new efforts to help support small businesses that are already in the town.
It will still be a few months before shoppers can step foot in the space.
“Virginia ABC is in the permitting phase and we expect to open the new location in May or June,” Eischen said.
Luggage Plus isn’t currently open in Tysons Corner Center, but the store plans to soon return to the mall.
The store was located in a spot on the first level near Nordstrom. When Tysons Reporter stopped by earlier this week, the space was empty and locked up.
An employee at the Luggage Plus store in the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City said that the store closed to move to a different spot in the Tysons mall. The employee said shoppers can expect the new store to open in a few weeks.
A spokesperson for the mall confirmed to Tysons Reporter that the mall is working with Luggage Plus to finalize an alternate, permanent location, saying that the former space was a temporary lease.

The store sells kids’ clothing from newborns to size 10. Shoppers can find spring clothing, games, accessories and gear.
“Little Birdies Boutique takes a southern approach to children’s wear offering nostalgic traditional clothing mixed in with fun playful styles,” according to the website.

Beeboy, a plush toy company that had just arrived in the mall, now appears to be closed for good. The store occupied the former spot of candy store Sugarfina on the first level by Macy’s. The store was open in January, but last week, the windows were covered and the sign was taken down.
Meanwhile, All Star Sports has moved from the second level near Barnes and Noble to the first level across from BrandBox.
BrandBox has a new “marketplace” that sells men’s and women’s clothing brands that are found online. According to a sign outside the store, the brands include Rhone, Jared Lang, Stutterheim, Welden and Faherty.
The Creative Collective POPUP that was adjacent to BrandBox during the holidays is now back in the mall.
The pop-up store is currently featuring Haus of Jung, which makes leather handbags, along with four other artisans and small businesses, according to an Instagram post. Haus of Jung plans to be in the space for two weeks, the post said.
