The Beer Store recognizes it is part of this collective response and will continue to operate with all our customers’ and employees’ safety and well-being top of mind. To this end, we will continue to implement and enforce every precaution necessary to protect the health and safety of all who enter our stores.

The Beer Store remains open, and our various locations continue to serve customers during this lockdown period safely.

We have adapted our health and safety practices to protect the communities that we operate within effectively. We will continue to make necessary adjustments to align with the best public health guidance in Ontario.
