Prices will be the same as other outlets including the LCBO and the Beer Store, but convenience is a bonus for many, as grocery stores are more accessible and generally have friendlier operating hours, although they must still adhere to regulated sale hours for beer and wine, as mandated by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario -- Monday to Saturday 9:00 AM to 11:00 PM and Sunday 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
