TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - For the convenience of our customers, many LCBO stores will observe extended hours of operation this holiday season. Extended hours will vary by location and customers are asked to contact their local LCBO for more information.

All LCBO stores will open at regular hours and close at 6:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24, and on New Year's Eve, Saturday, December 31.

LCBO stores will be closed on Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25 and Boxing Day, Monday, December 26.  LCBO stores will re-open on Tuesday, December 27. LCBO stores will be closed New Year's Day, Sunday, January 1 and will re-open on Monday January 2. 

LCBO agency stores must close on Christmas Day and New Year's Day; however, some may choose to open on Boxing Day. Agency stores are locally-owned retail establishments that contract with the LCBO to sell beverage alcohol and other products in communities that are too small to support LCBO stores.
