LCBO open later during the Pan Am Games

Finally some good news for those griping about HOV lanes and road closures during the Pan Am Games - at least you'll be able to buy your booze later in the evening. The LCBO announced today that three downtown stores will have extended hours for the duration of the Pan Am Games in Toronto.

The LCBO stores include locations at Maple Leaf Gardens, Queens Quay (2 Cooper St.) and the one at King and Spadina. The new operating times from now through July 26 are as follows:

  • Maple Leaf Gardens - 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday to Saturday. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
  • Queens Quay - 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
  • King and Spadina - 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Thursday. 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m Friday and Saturday. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

The new hours still don't eclipse those of the Weston LCBO which is open until 11 p.m. every day except Sunday.

Are the new LCBO hours enough to make you forget about HOV? Let us know in the comments.
