TORONTO, Aug. 22, 2014 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on Labour Day, Monday, September 1 and resume business on Tuesday, September 2.
Many LCBO stores in cottage and resort areas will stay open until 9:00 p.m. on Friday, August 29. All LCBO stores will observe their normal business hours on Saturday, August 30 and Sunday, August 31.
LCBO agency stores may be open on Labour Day, provided local municipalities do not object. 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.
All LCBO offices, including LCBO Customer Service and the helloLCBO Contact Centre, will be closed on Labour Day. Customers should check for individual store hours with their local LCBO store or online at www.lcbo.com using the 'Store Search' feature. With the exception of Labour Day, they can also contact the toll-free, bilingual helloLCBO Contact Centre at 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226) or online at www.hellolcbo.com. In Toronto, call 416 365-5900.
