Last month, the Ontario government announced that the LCBO would be opening longer hours. The changes took effect yesterday, and it seems Ontarians are taking full advantage of the new hours. Read on to learn about the new store hours, staffing levels, and layout. It’s the perfect time to start a new tradition. Here are some things you should know about the new LCBO hours
LCBO will be open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays
The LCBO has announced new hours for select locations starting this Friday. Stores will open at 10 a.m. on Fridays, ten a.m. on Saturdays, and 11 a.m. on Sundays. The new hours coincide with a declaration by the provincial government that legalized alcohol sales from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week. The new hours are being implemented in about fifty stores across Ontario, but these hours may not be the same as the ones of your local liquor store. You can find a list of store locations here.
The new hours will be effective on May 14. Stores will remain closed on Mondays. Until further notice, LCBO stores will operate from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The majority of stores will remain open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
LCBO stores will be closed on statutory holidays
On Feb. 17, LCBO stores will be closed, but some agency stores will be open for business. In some small towns, these stores are locally owned and operated and will operate under their normal operating hours. If the local municipality approves the closure, LCBO agencies will be open on this holiday as well. In addition to its retail stores, the LCBO also operates offices. In addition to its retail stores, the LCBO has agency locations.
On Christmas Eve, most grocery stores will close at 6 p.m. and reopen at noon on Christmas Day. In addition, most restaurants will be open, and many will be closed on Boxing Day. While most businesses are closed on this day, GO Transit, YRT, and Durham Region Transit will be running on Sunday hours. Some locations may open early, however, including the Oshawa Museum and Darlington Provincial Park.
LCBO store layout
You may be wondering how you can find the LCBO store layout and hours in your area. The LCBO is Ontario’s liquor retailer and licensing organization. It is the largest buyer of beverage alcohol and operates over 650 retail stores, catalogs, special order services, and 210 agency stores. In addition to providing the highest level of convenience and social responsibility, the LCBO is a convenient location to buy beer and wine.
When choosing a liquor store layout, there are a number of factors to consider. According to Gordon Heins, a product merchandising specialist with the New Hampshire Liquor Commission, stores should be set up so that customers can move around the store with as little effort as possible. To this end, they should be designed with unobstructed lanes, efficient shelving, and adequate lighting. These factors are all vital when determining how to design a successful liquor store.
When it comes to LCBO staffing hours, there are many reasons why this situation is so problematic. It’s a terrible practice for many reasons, but the most obvious is a lack of adequate staffing. Employees are expected to work long hours, beginning at 7 a.m., for three hours straight, and then work another five hours, then do it all over again. These employees are tired physically, mentally, and emotionally. The LCBO management is incentivized to cut the number of hours they provide their employees, but the workers are forced to work long shifts with little notice. In addition to the hours, they are required to attend trainings that enhance their knowledge of LCBO products, customer service skills, and social responsibility requirements.
The new extended hours will also be accompanied by a number of other changes, such as increased cleaning of the store and increased hand sanitizer usage. The changes will also affect in-store events and tastings. Some LCBO convenience outlets are privately owned and will be operating at different hours than the main store. For now, the Beer Store will remain open, though. While it’s not a perfect solution for the situation, LCBO executives say the changes will help to ensure that customers don’t experience any significant issues.
