DESTINATION SPAIN: LCBO OPENS NEW “PRODUCTS OF THE WORLD” STORE, 2946 BLOOR ST. W., TORONTO, ONTARIO

September 25, 2015

On September 25, 2015, LCBO opened its third “Products of the World” specialty store. Focusing on Spain, the destination shop at the LCBO store at 2946 Bloor St. W. offers over 160 different Spanish wines and spirits. The selection is triple the store’s previous offering and is believed to be the best assortment available outside of Spain.

Many of the wines and spirits are from LCBO’s Consignment Program, which means they are available to customers for the first time outside of Spanish bars and restaurants. The selection will be regularly refreshed to keep the assortment dynamic and appealing.

Featured products include:

· Beronia Tempranillo Rioja (LCBO #243055) - $ 12.95

· Bodegas Castano La Casona Monastrell (LCBO #143743) - $9.70

· Rioja Bordon, Rioja Gran Reserva (LCBO #428060) - $22.95

· 2013 Naranjas Azules Garnacha (LCBO #771238) - $16.80

· Faustino VII Blanco Rioja (LCBO #399568) - $12.65

· Ferre I Catasus Brut Reserva (LCBO #343375) - $12.80

Products have been chosen to appeal to a wide range of tastes and budgets, ranging in price from about $9 -$50. To better enhance the shopping experience for all fans of Spanish wines and spirits, the Bloor St. W. & Royal York store has three Product Consultants and three Spanish-speaking Customer Service Representatives.

Hours of operation are:

Monday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

LCBO’s Products of the World program already includes destination stores for Greece and Portugal, with more countries planned for the coming year.
