BACKGROUNDER RELOCATED LCBO LINDSAY STORE OPENING 449 KENT STREET WEST
July 30, 2014
● The official opening of the relocated Lindsay LCBO store is Wednesday, July 30, 2014, at 9:30 a.m.
● The relocated store at 449 Kent Street West will provide convenience and service to 27,000 local residents. The population is expected to increase by 15 per cent over the next 10 years.
● The 12,000 square-foot Lindsay store has 8,000 square feet of display space, twice the size of the previous store. It carries a wide selection of more than 2,100 wines, spirits, beers, ready-to-drink cocktails and coolers. It also has a Vintages Corner featuring up to 250 premium wines and spirits.
● The relocated store has a prominent Ontario wine display showcasing more than 410 Ontario products, including some 260 VQA wines.
● It also features a walk-in beer cold room with 565 linear feet of shelving. The cold room, which offers a wide selection of beers, ready-to-drink cocktails and coolers, is chilled by outside air for much of the year. This provides significant environmental benefits and reduces utility use and costs.
● The store’s product mix is the result of market research, matching products and services to local tastes and demographics, and community interests.
● The store has six checkouts, including a customer service counter, has ample parking, and is wheelchair accessible.
● There will be 16 full-time and part-time employees, including a product consultant, all of whom are trained in product knowledge and responsible service.
● Hours of operation are 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, and 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
