Beginning Tuesday, Ontarians can buy beer and liquor from the LCBO online and have it delivered to their front door, for a $12 fee. The LCBO's website is offering thousands of brands of beer, whisky and other alcoholic beverages for home delivery via Canada Post. There's a $50 minimum order. "Online shopping at enables us to offer a convenient customer experience in a changing marketplace," said George Soleas, president and chief executive at the LCBO. "This new virtual LCBO store is a natural extension of our in store shopping experience." While there is a delivery fee associated with the purchase online, also offers consumers the ability to order a product online and pick it up at a LCBO store for free. The service is aimed at help consumers secure rarer items that may sell out quickly, as they can reserve a bottle online and grab it on their way home. To buy from the website, consumers must create an account with Payment is by credit card, helping the province to verify the ages of people buying liquor. The province also warns that it will take between two and four days for online deliveries to reach their destination. Orders of speciality, or rarer products, may face up to a full month delay in receiving their shipment. The move to allow the sale of booze online is aimed at further modernizizing the LCBO, while helping to drive new government revenues. The province launched into a major effort to change alcohols sales in Ontario last year following a report released by former TD Bank chief executive Ed Clark. The report suggested that there is far more the province can do to increase competition of booze sales within Ontario, while driving up revenues for the province. Late last year, it introduced the sale of beer in grocery stores, requiring stores to buy licences from the government for the privilege. It also imposed a licensing fee on the Beer Store, raised provincial taxes on beer by three cents per litre and increased the minimum price that can be charged for a bottle of wine.
