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.
