A new liquor store is coming to Huntersville.

The NC Alcoholic Beverage Commission during its monthly meeting Wednesday approved a new store at 335 Huntersville Gateway Blvd. It will replace a leased store site that is less than a mile away, ABC said. An opening date of the new store was not immediately available.

The next closest ABC store is on Statesville Road in Cornelius, ABC says.

North Carolina is one of 17 states that regulate alcohol sales, distribution, manufacturing and transportation through a controlled system.
