TORONTO, Oct. 7, 2015 /CNW/ - LCBO stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Monday, October 12, 2015, as it is a statutory holiday. Regular hours of operation will resume on Tuesday, October 13, 2015.
All LCBO stores will have regular hours of business on Saturday, October 10 and Sunday, October 11.
Some LCBO agency stores will observe their normal hours of business on Monday, October 12 and can sell beverage alcohol on Thanksgiving Monday provided their local municipality allows it. 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.
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. All LCBO offices, including LCBO Customer Service and the helloLCBO Contact Centre, will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
