“As the province continues to ease COVID-19 restrictions, the LCBO has updated our operating hours, including opening on Mondays,” said the LCBO spokesperson.

The liquor board also reduced its in-store shopping capacities to 25% due to the provincial lockdown. Customer returns will also be paused throughout the shutdown.

“We continue to restrict capacity and hours in accordance with public health guidance across the province,” said the LCBO.
