On Oct. 18, Leaside’s getting 10,000 extra square feet of LCBO.
The new location at 65 Wicksteed will be replacing the current store on Laird.
The new location will stock 2,700 wines – 900 more than at the old store -- and between 850 and 1,000 spirits and premium wines in the Vintages section.
There will also be a tasting bar.
According to LCBO spokeswoman Heather MacGregor, the area the new LCBO will be serving is expected to grow by nine per cent in the next decade.
An extra feature will be the cold room. Though many LCBOs have them, this one will put our climate to use, sucking in chilled air from outside to cool it for much of the year instead of using coolant.
