LCBO Summerhill is excited to invite PAC Packaging Consortium members and guests for a tour of its heritage site building accompanied by a buffet lunch and wine tasting of six wines from around the world on December 7, 2017.
The LCBO Summerhill store, the LCBO’s Toronto flagship liquor outlet, opened in February 2003. This historical building is 102 years old and housed a former train station with grand architectural features, including marble walls, a 40-foot ceiling, brass wickets and a clock tower.
Today, it is the largest store in the LCBO network at 32,000 square feet, consisting of 21,000 square feet of retail floor and the remainder as warehouse.
The store boasts 5,200 brands of wines, spirits, beer and cider—2,500 in the general list and 2,700 in Vintages. This the largest number of products in Ontario and possibly in Canada.
The store is divided in segments and categories i.e. Vintages, general list, craft beer, general beers, ciders, spirits and two areas for hosting special events such as cooking classes and tutored tastings in wine, spirits and beer.
