TORONTO, May 11 /CNW/ - Beginning May 15, many resort and cottage-area
LCBO stores that normally close at 6:00 p.m. will remain open until 9:00 p.m.
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.
All LCBO stores will be closed on Victoria Day, Monday, May 18. As with
most government offices, LCBO's Toronto head office will close on Victoria
Day. Some LCBO agency stores will observe their normal hours of business on
Monday, May 18. 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 LCBO stores.
Customers should check with their local LCBO store or contact the
toll-free, bilingual LCBO Infoline at 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226) or
firstname.lastname@example.org for individual store hours. In Toronto, call 416 365-5900.

1-800-361-3291. Both the LCBO Infoline and Customer Service will be closed on
Over the long weekend, the LCBO reminds customers to please drink
responsibly and to never consume alcohol when driving or boating. Don't forget
to bring a reusable bag when you shop at LCBO and please take your empty
beverage alcohol containers (large and small glass bottles, PET plastic, Tetra
Paks, bag-in-box and cans) to The Beer Store for a full deposit refund.
