Beer, cider to be sold in 80 more grocery stores
Eighty more grocery stores in Ontario will be allowed to sell beer and cider this summer. The provincial government has opened up bidding for grocery stores looking to get in on sales of suds, and will announce the selected locations in May. The expanded sales began in December 2015, and now 130 stores sell beer and cider — with 70 of those also selling wine. Beer and cider will eventually be sold in up to 450 grocery stores in Ontario, and wine will be in up to 300 of those stores.
