LCBO EXPANDS SELECTION AT GREEK SPECIALTY STORE
200 DANFORTH AVE.
August 7, 2015
Just in time for Taste of the Danforth, LCBO is adding 40 new Greek products to its specialty store at 200 Danforth Avenue in Toronto. Located in the heart of Toronto’s Greek community, this destination boutique now offers up to 100 Greek wines and spirits. The selection is triple the store’s previous offering and is believed to be the best assortment available outside of Greece.
Since opening in May, Greek product sales have grown by almost 59 % compared with last year, reflecting the popularity of these products. 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 Greek bars and restaurants.
New Greek additions include:
· Mountain Fish Red Peloponnese (LCBO # 392480) - $12.80
· Primus Zitsa White (LCBO # 395962) - $12.30
· Boutari Moschofilero White (LCBO #172387) - $12.95
· Boutari Agiorgitiko (LCBO #172148) - $12.95
· Atma White (LCBO #116185) - $16.49
Product selection meets every budget ranging in price from about $12 -$72. To better serve the Greek-speaking community and enhance the shopping experience for all fans of Greek wines and spirits, the Danforth store has one Product Consultant and two Greek-speaking Customer Service Representatives.
Hours of operation are:
Monday – Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
“We’re pleased to announce that we’re adding another 40 products to the store’s Greek section to coincide with this year’s ‘Taste of the Danforth.’ Our new ‘Products of the World’ program gives our customers the opportunity to sip, savour and experience rare and hard to find wines and spirits from around the world. We encourage you to visit the store to take advantage of some of the great products Greece has to offer.” George Soleas, Executive Vice President, LCBO
