/R E P E A T -- LCBO closings on Labour Day/

TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on Labour Day, Monday, September 5 and resume business on Tuesday, September 6.

Many LCBO stores in cottage and resort areas will stay open until 9:00 p.m. on Friday, September 2. All LCBO stores will observe their normal business hours on Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4.

LCBO agency stores may be open on Labour Day, provided local municipalities do not object. Agency stores are locally-owned retail establishments authorized by the LCBO to sell beverage alcohol, along with other retail products, in communities that are too small to support LCBO stores.

All LCBO offices, including LCBO Customer Service, will be closed on Labour Day. Customers should check for individual store hours with their local LCBO store or online at www.lcbo.com using the 'Store Search' feature. They can also contact the toll-free, bilingual LCBO Contact Centre at 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226) or online at www.lcbo.com/service. In Toronto, call 416 365-5900. The TTY number for people who are deaf and hard of hearing is 416 864-6898 or 1-800-361-3291.

The LCBO reminds everyone to please drink responsibly and to never consume alcohol when driving or boating. A summer-themed, Deflate the Elephant social responsibility TV commercial will air across Ontario on major stations in advance of Labour Day. In addition, a new alcohol-free Mocktail demonstration video and new responsible hosting tips are available at www.deflatetheelephant.com.

Please bring a reusable bag when shopping at the LCBO and take your empty beverage alcohol containers (large and small glass bottles, PET plastic, Tetra Pak cartons, bag-in-box and cans) to The Beer Store for a full deposit refund.
