WHO WE ARE

The LCBO is the world's largest purchaser of beverage alcohol, buying wine, spirits and beer from more than 60 countries for Ontario consumers and licensees. We shop the world for you.

Headquartered in downtown Toronto, ON, the LCBO operates some 600 stores and various other outlets across Ontario as well as five regional warehouse facilities. An integrated distribution and retailing network makes quality products regularly available to our customers.

A record-breaking bottom line and back-to-back “Innovative Retailer of the Year” awards highlight the LCBO's status as a customer-focused, forward-thinking organization that continually seeks new insights into the needs of the marketplace, and finds creative ways to proactively meet them.

At the LCBO, we believe that true innovation should extend not only to dynamic merchandising programs, special events and strategic partnerships, but also to leading-edge systems and socially responsible business practices that reflect our leadership role in the industry. As a socially responsible retailer our Challenge and Refusal and Check 25 programs ensure sales are made in a safe and responsible manner. It may not be standard business practice, but it's the sort of proactive initiative you would expect from the LCBO.

We are proud to make the most exceptional quality products from around the world available to our customers. It is the LCBO’s network of engaged individuals who are also responsible for making the company today’s beverage alcohol retailer of choice. The highly complex operation is backed by a team of diversified, knowledgeable and socially responsible employees who are committed to providing exceptional customer service.
