I asked a few LCBO managers why they don't bring it in and the answer was the usual: it doesn't sell. Of course it won't sell like Kozel or some other popular pilsners but, is this how we decide if a product should be available? It's a premium product and it sells in lower quantities. Is this so hard to understand? One more example of LCBO stupidity at a large scale. Will it ever end???

All i want is one store in downtown Toronto that is free to sell whatever they want.

esprit wrote:You are correct Greg, a store only has to order any available product for a customer and can demand that they order a full case but whether a product is stocked depends upon a) whether it's a core brand and b) the manager's discretion. We go through the exactly the same thing that Liberty goes through with our brands as one store after another drops brands like Duvel and Chimay because of what they consider "poor sales".

Have you forwarded your comments to Beverage Alcohol System Review? I sent similar comments to the contact email address so that they have my opinion, even if they choose to ignore it
I'd recommend everyone take 15 minutes or so to do the same if they are so inclined. I don't have any expectations but I'm willing to be pleasantly surprised

Unfortunately the system is set up to be managed by a governing set of "rules" that are mandated to maximize "turns".
The Category Management system set up by LCBO was created to mimic Loblaws in the sense that every inch of selling space is quantified for maximum profit. If that is what success looks like then they are full on successful.
