Johnston ABC Store May Be Next To Store Named For Moonshine Legend

Posted March 10, 2004

— Johnston County may get another Alcoholic Beverage Commission (ABC) store with an ironic twist.

The new liquor store would be located next to a store that bares the name of local moonshine legend Percy Flowers.

The state ABC board is expected to make a decision Friday morning.

Some residents spoke out against the ABC store at a public hearing Tuesday night in Johnston County. If it is approved, it would be the seventh ABC store in Johnston County.
