You no longer have to worry about running out of booze this Christmas. For the first time ever, the Ontario Beer Store has announced that they will be open on Boxing Day this year.
For seven hours on Boxing Day, Ontarians will be able to go to one of 100 beer stores in the province that will be open and re-stock their fridge for the seemingly endless holiday parties.
There will only be 100 Beer Stores open on Boxing Day, but they are located all over the province. Some of the locations on the list include five Brampton stores, four Mississauga stores, four Toronto stores, and five Scarborough stores along with a number of other GTA locations.
Outside the Toronto area, there will also be stores open in Huntsville, Kingston, Ottawa, St. Catherines, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Timmins, Waterloo, and Windsor. The Beer Store has also released the full list of locations on their website.
Along with this new announcement, the Beer Store also revealed their holiday hours this year. Your last chance to stock up before Christmas Day will be Monday, December 24th before 6 PM. All their locations will then be closed throughout Christmas Day.
The Beer Store will have normal operating hours from the 27th to the 30th. Then on December 31st, they will close at 6 PM again and remain closed through New Year's Day.
The selected Beer Stores will be open from 10 AM to 6 PM on Boxing Day, allowing Ontarians in those areas to restock their fridge for Christmas parties or get ahead of the New Years Eve party buying rush.
