More than 40 ABC stores to temporarily close

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board announced that more than 40 of their stores will close Saturday in order to take precaution for the coronavirus pandemic.

WAFF is told the ABC Board is taking steps to ensure the safety and welfare of its employees and customers.
