Toronto grocery stores start selling wine today

Remember when beer arrived at grocery stores last year and everyone went nuts? Well, it's time to get excited again because as of today, October 28, you can now find bottles of wine on in select supermarkets along with craft beer and cider. This should make it easier to stock up for your Halloweekend.

In September, the provincial government announced it would be bringing wine to 70 grocery stores. Its list of approved retailers includes smaller outlets and massive chains, like Loblaws and Sobeys.

While not all approved Toronto stores are selling wine just yet, these Loblaws locations have begun selling wine as of today.

  • Toronto: Loblaws Empress Market, 5095 Yonge St
  • Toronto: Real Canadian Superstore, 2549 Weston Rd.
  • Toronto: Loblaws, 2877 Bayview Village
  • Toronto: Loblaws, 11 Redway Rd. (Millwood & Laird)

Eventually chains such as Coppa's Fresh Market, Highland Farms, Metro, Sobeys and Wal-mart will sell wine but they haven't started doing so yet. In all, up to 300 grocery stores will carry wine. But we'll just have to take what we can get for now.
