When the time comes for beer to be sold on grocery store shelves in Ontario, don’t expect unlimited quantities.
According to The Star, strict guidelines will mean limitations as to how much beer can be sold.
It says in an agreement with the brewing industry, the province has decided only 46 million 6-packs will be permitted to be sold annually, at 450 of Ontario’s 1, 500 grocery stores by 2018.
When you break the numbers down even further, that works out to be 279 6-packs, or roughly 70 cases of beer, to be sold per day, per store.
Critics say this will only cause havoc around the holidays and long weekends, but you can always grab a case at The Beer Store.
