DESTINATION SOUTH AFRICA: LCBO OPENS NEW “PRODUCTS OF THE WORLD” STORE, 1899 BROCK RD., PICKERING, ONTARIO

September 16, 2016 

Friday, September 16, 2016 marks the opening of LCBO’s newest Products of the World specialty store. The destination boutique at 1899 Brock Rd. in Pickering offers approximately 130 wines from South Africa, including some 70 that are only available in-store at this location. Some of these products will also be available to buy online through our new e-commerce platform. This selection is believed to be one of the best single-store assortments available outside of South Africa.

Many of the wines are from LCBO’s Consignment Program, which means this is the first time they have been available for customers to purchase in LCBO stores. Previously, the products would have only been available in bars and licensed restaurants. The current selection represents a variety of products from wine regions across South Africa and will be regularly updated to keep the assortment interesting.

Products have been chosen to appeal to a wide range of tastes and budgets. The store is staffed with knowledgeable customer service representatives and product consultants who can offer expert advice on these new offerings.

With the opening of the South Africa boutique, LCBO’s Products of the World specialty store program now boasts 12 destination stores, including Greece, East Asia and Chile.

More destination stores, highlighting products from additional countries are scheduled to open later this year.
