In a press release published yesterday, food delivery service SkipTheDishes announced a partnership with the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) for on-demand delivery of alcoholic beverages to customers across the city of Toronto.
The service has already launched, with 15 stores in the Toronto area currently participating, and over 300 spirits, beer, and wine, as well as “a selection of local alcoholic beverages”, available to customers.
“Customers can also order gift bags, boxes, ice, and more for delivery from their local LCBO through SkipTheDishes,” said SkipTheDishes in an emailed statement to iPhone in Canada.
LCBO is dedicated to making alcoholic beverages more accessible to the public while maintaining the AGCO’s guidelines regarding the sale and provision of alcoholic products.
In addition, SkipTheDishes has already made its place in the hearts of Canadians with its generosity, and with the pandemic currently limiting Canadians to their homes, the arrangement can prove to be equally fruitful for both parties.
“We’re thrilled to be able to expand our offerings to our customers in Ontario through this partnership with the LCBO,” said Steve Puchala, Senior Vice President, Growth & Restaurant Success, SkipTheDishes.
LCBO President & CEO George Soleas stressed in the press release that this partnership would create “a safe, responsible, and convenient on-demand delivery service” for customers, which is becoming increasingly important with the pandemic in full-swing.
On-demand delivery service of products from LCBO stores will be available via SkipTheDishes from Tuesdays to Sundays, 10 a.m. to one hour before store closures.
