Ontario to allow wine sales in 150 grocery stores.
February 18, 2016
Ontario will allow 150 grocery stores to start selling wine in a bid to raise more revenue for the cash-strapped government.
The move will slightly relax the province’s strict wine retail rules, which currently restrict sales to the government-owned LCBO and 292 wine retail outlets mostly owned by two large wineries.
Online sales through a new LCBO e-commerce retail site allowing for home delivery or pickup at stores.
