LCBO Canada Day closings


    TORONTO, June 25 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on Tuesday,
July 1, 2008 to observe the Canada Day holiday. Some LCBO agency stores will
observe their normal hours of business on July 1. Agency stores are
locally-owned retail establishments authorized by the LCBO to sell beverage
alcohol, along with other products, in communities that are too small to
support LCBO stores.
    Most LCBO stores in cottage and resort areas have extended evening hours
on Fridays during the summer months. In addition, the LCBO has opened a number
of seasonal stores in these areas, which will operate in most cases until
Labour Day weekend.
    Customers should check with their local LCBO store or contact the
toll-free, bilingual LCBO Infoline at 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226) (or
infoline@lcbo.com) for individual store hours. In Toronto, call 416 365-5900.
The TTY number for the deaf and hearing impaired is 416 864-6898 or
1-800-361-3291. The LCBO Infoline, Customer Service Department and Head Office
will be closed on Canada Day.
    LCBO staff can provide tips and recipes to help hosts entertain
responsibly during summer long weekend celebrations so that guests get home
safely. For a selection of delicious non-alcoholic mocktail recipes, as well
as tips for preventing drinking and driving and getting the keys from someone
who is impaired, please visit www.lcbo.com/sr.
    Don't forget to bring a reusable bag when you shop at LCBO, and following
your Canada Day celebrations, please take your empty beverage alcohol
containers to The Beer Store for a full deposit refund.
