The Montgomery County Department of Liquor Control has a new home. After 30 plus years, the county has recently relocated the department’s offices and liquor warehouses from Crabbs Branch Way in Rockville to Edison Park Drive in Gaithersburg. MyMCMedia’s Sonya Burke reports that county officials believe the new location will enhance and streamline service for the public too.
