LCBO stores to close as summit security ramps up

Now I don't know, but I figure people living downtown are going to need a drink this week and guess what.... 7 LCBO stores will be closed. Better stock up my friends!

The LCBO is shutting down seven stores for three days as a safety precaution during the G20 summit.

The list includes one of its flagship stores on Queen's Quay, which is also a main distribution site for downtown bars and restaurants.

The agency made the decision to avoid becoming a target and for the protection of customers and workers.

The seven retail outlets are close to the security zone including one at Union Station which is inside the zone.

Other locations to be closed include:

Queens Quay, 2 Cooper Street
First Canadian Place
St. Lawrence Market, 87 Front Street West
Loblaws Plaza, 10 Lower Jarvis Street at Queens Quay
415 King Street West at Spadina Avenue
337 Spadina Avenue, north of Dundas at Baldwin Street

The seven locations will be closed from Friday, June 25 through Sunday,. June 27.

Bar and restaurant managers are being advised to stock-up ahead of the closures to avoid going dry during the summit.
