TORONTO, June 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Most LCBO stores will be open on Canada Day, Sunday, July 1, 2012. However, stores will be closed Monday, July 2 to observe the federal Canada Day statutory holiday.
Most LCBO agency stores will observe their normal hours of business on July 1 and 2. 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.
Many LCBO stores in cottage and resort areas have extended evening hours on Fridays during the summer. In addition, the LCBO has opened a number of seasonal stores in these areas, which will operate in most cases until Labour Day weekend.
All LCBO offices, including LCBO Customer Service and helloLCBO, will be closed on July 2.
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.
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.
