lcbo online store

You can now buy booze online at the LCBO

You can now officially buy booze online at the LCBO. The online shop went live earlier today, and features some 5,000 products from major beer brands to boutique wineries and craft cider.

The service will particularly benefit those who don't live in the vicinity of well stocked LCBO stores in Toronto and beyond. Products can be delivered direct to your home for a charge of $12 or be picked up at the nearest LCBO location for free - the hitch is that it can take one to four weeks for the order to arrive at the LCBO for pick-up.

Home deliveries are pegged at two to four days, but can take up to a month if the product is coming from a third-party supplier. Rare wines and more niche booze brands are most likely to take longer to ship.

Aside from the luxury of home delivery, the real advantage of the service is the way it allows you to leverage the wide selection offered by the LCBO as a whole. I haven't seen Bandol at the Dupont location I frequent this summer, for instance, but there's a Hecht & Bannier version available online.

It's been a long time coming, but the LCBO finally appears to taking consumer convenience more seriously.
