Here's why your local LCBO shelves might look empty this weekend

Your liq-bo trip might be a little less fruitful than usual this weekend, as shelves are looking somewhat barren due to delivery delays.

“Our new Warehouse Management System, an updated technology for handling product intake and outbound orders, at the Durham Retail Service Centre, was implemented in mid-June,” an LCBO spokesperson shared with Daily Hive.

“While some interruption in service was expected, deliveries remain moving at a slower than usual pace.”

The company is stressing, however, that the lack of booze on shelves isn’t because there’s a lack of booze overall.

“There is no inventory shortage, but rather, a delay in delivery,” they said.

The LCBO isn’t sharing any information on when the deliveries are expected to be back on track, but it sounds like they’re putting in efforts to ensure your summer weekends aren’t totally sans-rosé.

“Our Retail Service Centre and any impacted parts of our business are working to minimize impact to our customers. The Durham Retail Service Centre is one of several warehouses the LCBO operates across the province,” the spokesperson said.
