Those planning a fancy dinner at home may be able to make one less stop when shopping for supplies.
Starting today, 70 Ontario grocery stores will start selling domestic and imported wine.
The move is part of the Ontario government’s effort to expand convenient access to alcohol, revealed by Finance Minister Charles Sousa in July.
Sousa will make an official announcement this morning at Coppa’s Fresh Market at Dufferin and Finch.
Retailers include select locations of Sobeys, Metro, Loblaws, Walmart, Longo Brothers Fruit Markets, CANEX, Coppa’s Fresh Market, Farm Boy, Fresh Market Foods, Highland Farms, Starsky’s Fine Foods, Uxbridge Foods and Yummy Market. The complete list of stores can be found here.
Beer was introduced to some grocery stores last December. Both Beer and cider will soon be sold in some 450 grocery stores in Ontario with eventually 300 stores being able to sell wine.
