LCBO Extends Retail Store Hours


Collective bargaining is currently underway between the LCBO and OPSEU, with the Union in a legal strike position as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 5

While LCBO’s focus remains on achieving a deal that is fair to bargaining unit employees and helps the LCBO continue to operate effectively and efficiently for Ontario in a new marketplace, we are confident in our plan that will allow LCBO to continue serving our customers at this time. We offer the following guidance for shopping prior to July 4 to help prepare for the potential disruption to the retail customer experience. 

Shop early

  • We encourage customers to shop early and stock up on preferred products. Our shelves are well-stocked, and we are doing everything we can to maintain inventory levels. 
  • Customers may wish to stock up on spirits and Vintages products in particular at this time.
  • Online shopping options remain available for added convenience, including home delivery, delivery to store and Same-Day Pick Up.
    • To ensure timely delivery windows for customers, delivery to store will be available up until June 26.
    • Same-Day Pick Up will be available until July 2.
  • Customers may purchase beverage alcohol products through participating On-Demand Delivery providers from the LCBO until July 4. 

Extended hours

  • LCBO will be extending hours at all stores across the province from Thursday, June 27 through Thursday, July 4.
    • All stores will open early at 9:30 a.m. 
    • While many stores will stay open up to 10:00 p.m., closing hours will vary depending on location. 
  • Customers are encouraged to consult local store schedules which can be found here and will be updated when extended hours are in effect.
  • A reminder that all LCBO retail locations will be closed on Monday, July 1.
