The LCBO has announced extended hours in advance of a possible strike as well as to help customers shopping for Canada Day activities.

It says select stores will open from as early as 9:00 a.m. to as late as 11:00 p.m. from tomorrow through Saturday — while some stores will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.

All stores will be closed on Canada Day but over 450 stores across Ontario will open from as early as 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. the following day — if the Crown corporation isn’t hit by labour action.

Members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union will be in a legal strike position just after midnight next Monday — although the LCBO has said it is hopeful a negotiated collective agreement can be reached.
