Some Ontario shoppers will be able to stock up on six-packs while visiting the supermarket starting today.
Up to 60 grocery stores are expected to start selling beer within the next two weeks.
The Ontario government has not said exactly which grocers will sell beer, but said in September that 25 of the stores are in the Greater Toronto Area. The government said 16 are in western Ontario, 13 are in the east and six are in the north.
Grocery stores will be able to sell six-packs, while The Beer Store will keep exclusive rights to sell 24- and 12-packs.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is expected to stop at an east-end Toronto Loblaws on Leslie Street near Eastern Avenue to kick off the initiative on Tuesday morning.
