Liquor store hours permanently extended
Wednesday, June 30, 2021 10:30 AM
Liquor retailers authorized to open earlier for the safety and convenience of their customers during the COVID-19 pandemic now have the option to maintain their expanded morning hours.
In April 2020, government temporarily authorized liquor retailers, such as wine stores and private liquor stores, to open as early as 7 a.m., to facilitate physical distancing for seniors and those who are immunocompromised. This temporary authorization was originally set to expire on June 30, 2021.
However, in response to industry feedback and to ensure businesses can continue to support their customers – particularly seniors and those who live in rural areas, who have benefited from the convenience of extended retail hours – the Province is permanently allowing liquor retailers throughout B.C. to operate between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. daily, if they choose to do so.
This permanent change relates to in-store shopping only. Liquor delivery may occur only after 9 a.m., and the authorization for unlicensed third-party delivery services to deliver liquor at 7 a.m. expires on June 30, 2021.
These changes do not override any additional requirements or limitations placed on hours of liquor service by local governments or First Nations.
