LCBO setting up shop in grocery stores
The Liberal government has announced a pilot project that will see liquor and wine sold in 10 grocery stores.
Some Ontario shoppers will have a new option for buying alcohol late this year when the Liquor Control Board sets up Express stores inside the supermarkets.
Which communities will get the new stores has yet to be determined.
Consumers would still take their alcohol purchases to an L-C-B-O cashier, not to the grocery check-out with their food items.
Finance Minister Dwight Duncan says he expects the pilot project will be well received by consumers and will then be expanded to other areas.
