TORONTO, Feb. 12 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on
Monday, February 18, 2008 for Family Day, a statutory holiday under the Retail
Business and Holidays Act.
All LCBO stores will observe their regular hours of business on
Saturday, February 16 and Sunday, February 17.
Some LCBO agency stores will observe their normal hours of business on
February 18, if they have approval to open from their local municipality.
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.
LCBO administrative offices, including LCBO Infoline and LCBO Customer
Service, will be closed on Family Day.
To confirm individual store hours leading up to Family Day, customers
should check with their local LCBO store or contact the toll-free, bilingual
LCBO Infoline at 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226) or email@example.com. In Toronto,

encourages customers to please drink responsibly and to never drink and drive.
Please also help the environment and return your empty liquor, wine, beer and
cooler containers to The Beer Store for a full deposit refund.
For people entertaining during the long weekend, LCBO store staff can
provide tips and recipes to help them entertain responsibly and ensure guests
get home safely. Responsible hosting information is also available at
