Proposed LCBO agency stores in the local region are on Main Street in
Everett; Main Street, Lisle; Glencairn on Webster Road; Switzer St in
New Lowell; Airport Road in Mono Mills; and Hwy 50 Palgrave.
Submissions which qualify, will be subject to site visits in November
and authorizations issued in December.
"Under the Program, the LCBO authorizes local retailers to sell
beverage alcohol in conjunction with other retail goods. LCBO
Convenience Outlets sell beverage alcohol to the public at the same
prices charged at regular LCBO retail stores, The Beer Store and other
retail outlets," according to the RFP guidelines. "However, purchases
of beverage alcohol by a Convenience Outlet operator from the LCBO will
be at a discounted price. Operators issued an Authorization under this
RFP will be able to begin to sell beverage alcohol once they receive
their first order of product."
Additonally, retailers in 302 communities interested in becoming
authorized to sell beverage alcohol can access the RFP and enter a
lottery for each community. "Those selected will be eligible for
Convenience Outlet authorizations."
The LCBO expects to have 200 agency stores selling alcohol by spring
