LCBO Opens Canada's Largest Liquor Store  (February 7, 2003)

On February 4th, Tim Hudak, Ontario's Consumer and Business Services Minister, opened Canada's largest liquor store in the faithfully restored North Toronto Railway Station.

The building that houses the Summerhill liquor outlet on Yonge Street was operated as a Canadian Pacific Railway station from 1916 to 1930.

The 31,000-square-foot space is dominated at the entrance by a majestic cathedral ceiling with marble walls and the original brass ticket wickets from the old railway station.

The shelves hold the most comprehensive array of wines, beers and spirits available in Ontario – over 5,000 labels. A prominent feature is the wall of Canadian Icewine and the largest selection of Ontario wines on the planet.

There is also a demonstration kitchen for cooking classes and tutored tastings.

The LCBO's expectation is that this flagship store will take in twice as much revenue as the former, much smaller, Summerhill liquor store did.
