Cumberland City Councillor Stephen Blais today was pleased to help officially open to the new LCBO store at the corner of Innes and Trim. This new 10,000 square-foot LCBO store brings additional service to the growing Orléans area of Cumberland Ward.
“The new LCBO is a wonderful addition to our growing community,” says Blais. “With its array of wines, spirits and beers, the new LCBO has something for everyone and will serve the diverse tastes of our community.”
The new store has more than 7,200 square feet of display space. It offers more than 1,400 wines, spirits, beers, ready-to-drink cocktails and coolers and beverage alcohol gift packs. There is a large Ontario wine section at the front of the store with some 450 linear feet of shelving, including a prominent VQA wine display, and a VINTAGES section that will offer more than 400 fine wines and premium spirits.
The store also has a 1,200 square foot walk-in beer cold room with a prominent Ontario Craft Brewers (OCB) display, and ready-to-drink cocktails and coolers.
“In addition to the increase in product options, the new LCBO will also bring 10 new full time jobs to Cumberland Ward,” adds Blais.
Other features include a gift section, mixed-drink displays and a portable tasting bar. The store has six checkouts, including a customer service counter, ample parking and is wheelchair accessible.
The store’s product mix is the result of consumer research, matching products and services to local tastes and demographics, and community interests. LCBO market research projects the area population will grow by 15 per cent in the next decade. The average household income for the area is more than 30 per cent above the provincial average.
