Oakville 7-Eleven store seeking license to sell beer and wine
Oakville residents might be able to soon decide between grabbing a Big Gulp or a beer on their next trip to 7-Eleven.
The local convenience store, located in Bronte at 2267 Lakeshore Rd., W. is one of over 61 7-Eleven locations seeking a liquor license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).
7-11 Canada has said that trained servers, in designated consumption areas of its store, would offer alcoholic beverages during limited hour.
All staff handling wine and beer would be trained under Smart Serve, a provincially approved program that teaches employees how to responsibly serve alcohol.
The liquor licenses, if approved, would not allow 7-11 to take part in the retail sales of beer and wine.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford has stated his commitment to extending wine and beer sales to corner stores.
The convenience store has expanded the food products its offered customers over the last couple of years, including hot from the oven items ready in minutes such as pizza, chicken strips, chicken wings, nachos and English muffin egg cheddar and bacon sandwiches.
