TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2015 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on Labour Day, Monday, September 7 and resume business on Tuesday, September 8.
Many LCBO stores in cottage and resort areas will have extended evening hours on Friday, September 4. All LCBO stores will observe their normal business hours on Saturday, September 5 and Sunday, September 6.
Some 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.
Customers should check for individual store hours with their local LCBO store or online at www.lcbo.com using the 'Store Search' feature. With the exception of Labour Day, they can also contact the toll-free, bilingual helloLCBO at 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226) or online at www.helloLCBO.com. 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. All LCBO offices, including LCBO Customer Service and the helloLCBO Contact Centre, will be closed on Labour Day.
