Top 5 Biggest LCBO Stores (and What They Offer) in Mississauga
Ah, the LCBO.
While you no doubt appreciate its presence, there’s a good chance you don’t know everything there is to know about your local LCBO.
Did you know, for example, that LCBO stores offer a range of experts who can help you with everything from choosing the perfect wine for dinner to selecting the ideal craft beer for your hipster cousin’s upcoming bachelor party?
All of these stores include a Vintages Corner,” says Christine Bujold, media relations coordinator, corporate communications, LCBO. “Each store has at least one product consultant who can provide advice on a wide range of products within the store to meet all tastes and budgets. Each store also has a spirits leader on staff, who specializes in spirit products, and a “WOW” leader (World of Ontario Wine), which is staff member with enhanced knowledge of Ontario wine products. While not all of the stores include a beer cold room, each store has a beer ambassador on staff. LCBO beer ambassadors have extensive knowledge of Ontario craft beer products.”
While almost every LCBO comes equipped with experts, some Mississauga locations offer a few extra perks.
Here’s a look at Mississauga’s biggest LCBO stores and what you might want to ask for when you visit each of them.
