If you're planning a girls night, you always already know what the first thing on your shopping list is - wine. While wine was only previously sold at LCBO and Wine Rack stores in Ontario, as of today (Friday, October 28th) around 60 stores across Canada have been given their license to sell.
According to Finance minister Charles Sousa, the change is to offer "more convenience for customers", as they're now able to pick up wine and food on the same trip. While beer was introduced to grocery stores last December, the government is planning to increase the number of licensed stores to 450 - and up to 300 of those will be carrying wine.
So if you're ready to stock up for your next wine night, the retailers ready to sell include Farm Boy, Highland Farms, Loblaws, Metro and Sobeys.
