Cabin John Liquor and Wine Store Closes; New Location Planned for Fall Opening

Montgomery County’s Alcohol Beverage Services (ABS) has closed its Cabin John Liquor and Wine store in advance of a planned store relocation. The closed store was in the Cabin John Village Shopping Center (inside the enclosed mall) at 11301 Seven Locks Rd. in Potomac.

The closure paves the way for ABS to open a larger flagship location in a newly renovated portion of the same shopping center, between the Giant and Starbucks retail stores. The ABS flagship store is slated to open in the fall. Cabin John Village is managed by retail real estate leader EDENS.

Highlights of the new store will include a wine library, dedicated tasting area and event space. The event space will feature beverage taps so local brewers and distillers can host events further strengthening ABS’ Maryland Made program. This space also will be available for product education and special events.

“We are excited to reimagine and relocate this store to a more visible and convenient location in the same shopping center and we thank EDENS for its partnership,” said ABS Chief of Retail Operations Kent Massie. “We apologize for any inconvenience as we wind down the existing Cabin John store and simultaneously gear up for the grand opening. We promise it will be well worth the wait.”

During the transition, shoppers are encouraged to visit nearby Montgomery County Liquor and Wine stores:
  • Potomac Liquor and Wine at 10132 River Rd. in Potomac
  • Montrose Liquor and Wine at 12015-B Rockville Pike in Rockville
  • Fallsgrove Liquor and Wine at 14937E Shady Grove Rd. in Rockville
