It could be argued that product demand evolves in lock step with what the industry actually promotes, and never without it. Hence 'requirements of a community' should include some challenging and palate-broadening products in all LCBO stores.
I think a few really backwards people managing LC stores forget this - and so they order jack squat for good beer selection. It's not enough for them to just order what has sold well in the past, they need to order tomorrow's beers as well.
Believe me, if you replaced all the Corona with say, an "easy drinking pale lager" from Ontario, you'd have people complainjing in hordes. You don't realize this.
If we are out of Bud Lime Light for even ONE NIGHT, all I hear from people is "how it is the only beer they really like".As if thery have tried every beer that exists. These people are the bane of my existence, and yet I serve them with a smile on my face. As sorry as I feel for these douchebags, I can't blame them for their shitty taste, or ass backwards palates. Point is, try to "force" something on someone and they just won't want it. They have to CHOOSE to want something else.
