TORONTO, May 12, 2015 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on Victoria Day, Monday, May 18.
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 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 regular LCBO stores.
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 (September 5-7).
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 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. HelloLCBO 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.
