Karl Littler on expanding beer sales to corner stores
In a recent Toronto Sun article, The Beer Store aired its views on the availability of beer through grocery and convenience stores. We take a very different view of the issue. Cutting away the clutter and self-serving arguments, this all comes down to greater choice and convenience for Ontarians.
“Ontarians lucky enough to have a licensed grocer nearby have shown just how much they value extra choice and convenience. Last year, grocery stores sold the equivalent of 68.4 million cans of beer and 5.1 million bottles of wine.”
