TORONTO, Nov. 4 /CNW/ - LCBO stores will open at 12:00 p.m. on Remembrance Day, Wednesday, November 11 and remain open until normal closing hours.
The exception is the City of Ottawa, where stores will not open until 12:30 p.m. due to Remembrance Day events in the National Capital Region.
LCBO agency stores will observe their normal hours of business on Wednesday, November 11. Agency stores are locally-owned retail establishments that contract with the LCBO to sell beverage alcohol along with other products in communities that are too small to support LCBO stores.
LCBO President and CEO Bob Peter said the hours of operation on November 11 ensure there is no conflict with traditional Remembrance Day services, while providing a level of customer service consistent with other retailers during the day.
As with other provincial government offices, LCBO head office in Toronto will be closed on November 11, in recognition of Remembrance Day. However, the toll-free, bilingual LCBO Infoline at 1-800-ONT-LCBO (668-5226) or email@example.com will be available to customers seeking additional information on individual store hours. 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.
Don't forget to bring a reusable bag when you shop at LCBO and please take your empty beverage alcohol containers (large and small glass bottles, PET plastic, Tetra Paks, bag-in-box and cans) to The Beer Store for a full deposit refund.
