The county’s Department of Liquor Control (DLC) announced it has opened a new store at Rockville’s King Farm Village Shopping Center.

The store opened Friday and is part of an effort by the department to expand its retail operation in the county. In a press release, the county said the King Farm store has “wood-look flooring and energy-efficient LED lighting.” It is stocked with approximately 3,000 liquor, beer and wine products.  

Due to Montgomery County’s liquor monopoly, the county-run stores are the only locations in the county where customers can buy liquor. King Farm Village Shopping Center is at 403 Redland Blvd., Rockville.

The new store brings the total amount of county-run stores to 25, the same number the county had before it closed the Chevy Chase store earlier this month. Another new Rockville store and an Aspen Hill location are expected to open later this year. The other Rockville store is under construction at the former site of an Asian supermarket at 300 N. Washington St. In April, DLC officials said the buildout of the stores would cost the county about $300,000.
