TORONTO, Aug. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - All LCBO stores will be closed on Labour
Day, Monday, September 2 and resume business on Tuesday, September 3.
Many LCBO stores in cottage and resort areas will stay open until 9:00
p.m. on Friday, August 30. All LCBO stores will observe their normal
business hours on Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1.
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. 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. The TTY number for people who are deaf

The LCBO reminds everyone to please drink responsibly and to never
consume alcohol when driving or boating. Responsible hosting
information is available at www.deflatetheelephant.com. This website offers tips, solutions and a variety of refreshing,
alcohol-free Mocktail recipes to ensure your celebrations with family
and friends are memorable for the right reasons.
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.
