Grocery Gateway now taking orders for LCBO products
Beginning Thursday, Grocery Gateway food delivery service will start delivering wine and spirits from the LCBO right to customers door.
The Longo’s owned chain says the option will be made available to any customers purchasing $45 worth of groceries before taxes.
The service is debuting the same day the Ontario government is expected to announce new details on how wine and beer will be sold in the province, including the sale of beer in supermarket.
Grocery Gateway is licensed by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario as a delivery service, and does not sell the product on site. The company says they are not selling the product, it’s simply acting as a middle-man delivery system.
Pricing for the wine will be set by LCBO and will cost the same as LCBO locations.
According to Longo’s, Grocery Gateway drivers will request government-issued photo ID from recipients upon delivery.
There will be an additional $1.50 delivery feel for every alcoholic item, to a maximum of $10.
Grocery Gateway has been delivering some beer for the past two years.
