The ABC Store No. 2 was built (on "Lot E") in the Eastgate Shopping Center in 1959. It opened for business June 5, 1959 at 10:00 am. It was expanded in April-May 1961 by 14 feet.
"The original ABC Store had a sales counter that ran the width of the store, limiting customer access to the products. Clerks provided customers with a list of available spirits, customers made their selections, and the clerks would bring the orders to the counter. The concept of self-service had not yet reached the ABC Store." (source unknown.)
An additional ABC store in downtown Chapel Hill (at 325 W. Franklin Street) was proposed but apparently never approved nor opened.

It was a local landmark, 1966
It was a Boston Market for years. The building, after an extensive remodel in 2016, is now the restaurant Zoës Kitchen.
