Socially Responsible Retailing Requirements for Grocers Selling Beer
Time:16 Dec 2015

Ontario is introducing beer sales in up to 450 grocery stores across the province, starting with 58 locations in December 2015.

The authorized stores are a mix of independent and large grocers in communities across Ontario. Criteria were set to ensure fairness and geographic distribution.

All stores will adhere to regulations ensuring the socially responsible sale of alcohol, including:

  • The sale of beer is limited to standard hours: Monday to Saturday: 9 am to 11pm and Sunday: 11am to 6pm
  • Beer is located in a single designated section of the store
  • Beer sold in grocery stores cannot exceed 7.1 per cent alcohol by volume
  • Beer will be sold in up to six-packs, up to 750 mL per container
  • All staff selling and handling beer in grocery stores must be a minimum of 18 years of age
  • Like at the LCBO, all staff must be fully trained and will be responsible for ensuring that customers under the age of 19 and intoxicated adults do not purchase beer
  • Uniform and minimum pricing for beer
  • Restrictions on promotional activities to ensure fair and responsible merchandising
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) will oversee these and other regulations.
