I was just ruminating, where is the big fancy LCBO at Bloor and Bathurst? Not a wealthy enough area? For a statist monopoly it sure has limited locations and limits what it sells very unreasonably at locations that would support better. Why is there ONE LCBO on Queen between Coxwell and the DVP, and it is so tiny? Does this service reflect the bookming residential and commercial scene?
Even the Queen Waverley store is a letdown for the expense and the massive size of the property it occupies, the beer selection is pedestrian despite the large room.
These are mysteries. In a 1KM stretch of Eglinton at Yonge there are 3 stores. Non are special. The area would be better served by one big well stocked one.
Ar the same time, there isn't a convenient BS nearby to drop off empties unless you have a car. So much emphasis on development in the area is to cater to non-drivers, yet...
If Donald Ford really wants to pander to alcohol consumers he should mandate recycling drop off in every LCBO. Same for licensed grocery stores. You sold it, you collect it.
