The LCBO rolled out online sales last year to much fanfare. But the hype fizzled as they were forced to keep up with area breweries and wineries equipped with faster delivery.

But now the LCBO is putting itself back into contention by offering next-day delivery to most Ontario cities. Orders placed between Monday and Friday by 1 pm will qualify.

The price of delivery is fixed at $16.95 and will require a minimum purchase of $50. The only hitch is that delivery won’t be available on weekends.

“We know our customers want flexibility and convenience and we’re looking forward to providing expedited delivery over the holidays with next business day service available for most cities in the province,” says Joyce Gray, LCBO Chief Customer Officer.

Orders can be placed on the LCBO’s website and mobile app.
