When the ABS light is on your brakes are set back to conventional braking system, so stopping distance is increased, you really should get it checked, sometimes the relay can stick causing the ABS motor to run and it will kill you battery even with the key off.

Thank you so much. Can any repair shop check this, or do I need to go to a special garage?

Most good shops will have the equipment, so call the ones you know or have good reviews in your area to be sure.
