More Toronto supermarkets getting beer and cider

More booze is coming to Toronto grocery stores, just in time for the Canada long weekend, announced the government of Ontario today.

Beer and cider could land in 76 more supermarkets across the province by June 30. That would bring the total number of stores authorized to sell beer and cider to 130, including 70 that can also sell wine. Eventually, 450 supermarkets in Ontario will permitted to stock their shelves with beer and cider.

As the provincial government writes, these 76 new stores came out on top in the LCBO's competitive bidding process. Beer first started appearing in local grocery stores back in December 2015.

Here are the 12 additional Toronto supermarkets that are licensed to start selling beer and cider starting at the end of next month. A handful of them are located right downtown.

  • Fortinos, 330 Queens Plate Dr.
  • Loblaws, 650 Dupont St.
  • Loblaws, 396 St. Clair Ave. W.
  • Loblaws , 60 Carlton St. (Maple Leaf Gardens)
  • Longo's, 15 York St. (Maple Leaf Square)
  • Metro, 89 Gould St.
  • Metro, 100 Lynn William St.
  • Metro, 735 College St.
  • Sobeys, 147 Laird Dr.
  • Sobeys, 81 St. Clair Ave. E.
  • Walmart Supercentre, 799 Milner Ave.
  • Walmart Supercentre, 1900 Eglinton Ave. E.

Please note that just because a store is permitted to start selling beer and cider doesn't mean they will be. It's best to check with them first before heading over to avoid disappointment.
