TORONTO, May 16 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on Victoria Day,
Monday, May 23.
As with most government offices, LCBO's Toronto head office will also
close on Victoria Day. Some agency stores will observe their normal
business hours on May 23. Agency stores are locally-owned retailers
that contract with LCBO to sell beverage alcohol, along with other
products, in communities that are too small to support regular LCBO
Beginning this long holiday weekend, many resort and cottage-area LCBO
stores that normally close at 6:00 p.m. may remain open later on Friday
evenings. Select LCBO stores in these communities will also stay open
later on Saturday evenings. In most cases, these extended Friday and
Saturday evening hours will continue until the Labour Day weekend.
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 the deaf and hard of
hearing is 416 864-6898 or 1-800-361-3291. The LCBO Contact Centre will
be closed on Victoria Day.
Over the summer, the LCBO reminds customers to please drink responsibly
and to never consume alcohol when driving or boating. Responsible
hosting information is also 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.
