THUNDER BAY – If wine, beer or spirits are in your Victoria Day plans, keep in mind that the LCBO will be closed on holiday Monday. That may not impact sales in some of the smaller communities.
As with most government offices, LCBO’s Toronto head office will also close on Victoria Day. Some agency stores will observe their normal business hours on May 19. 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.
Beginning this long holiday weekend, many resort and cottage-area LCBO stores that normally close at 6:00 p.m. may remain open later on Friday evenings.
Select LCBO stores in these communities will also stay open later on Saturday evenings. In most cases, these extended Friday and Saturday evening hours will continue until the Labour Day weekend (August 30-September 1).
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. HelloLCBO will be closed on Victoria Day.
