TORONTO, May 10, 2013 /CNW/ - LCBO reminds its customers that, regardless of the status of negotiations with the union representing its bargaining unit employees, all LCBO stores will be closed on Victoria Day, Monday, May 20. Like most other retailers, LCBO closes on this statutory holiday.
Some agency stores will observe their normal business hours on May 20. 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 regular LCBO stores.
"In advance of the first long weekend of the summer, customers are encouraged to shop early for the best product selections," said LCBO Senior VP, Retail Operations Bob Clevely. "Customers entertaining this weekend can avoid any possible service disruptions by shopping our stores early and stocking up."
Negotiations with OPSEU are ongoing. For updates on collective bargaining developments, visit the LCBO Media Centre at www.lcbo.com or follow us on Twitter @LCBONEWS.
Over the summer, the LCBO reminds customers to please drink responsibly and to never consume alcohol when driving or boating. Responsible hosting information is 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.
