lcbo canada day 2018

The LCBO and Beer Store are open on Canada Day this year

Merry almost Canada Day, Toronto!

Go out and buy yourself some beer this Sunday, just because you can.

That's right, for the first time in at least five years, both the LCBO and Beer Store will be open on July 1. This is not a joke (but wouldn't that be the meanest joke ever?)

Canada Day falls on a Sunday this year, meaning that our regularly-scheduled statutory holiday gets carried over to Monday.

Ontario liquor stores will thus be closed on Monday, July 2, but will operate under standard hours for both Saturday June 30 and Sunday July 1 of the Canada Day long weekend, as confirmed by the LCBO.

The Beer Store says similarly on website that all of its stores will be closed on Monday "in honour of Canada Day."

Most of its stores will be open on July 1, however — which is actual Canada Day — from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
