An LCBO Outlet could be on the horizon for both Fenwick and Wellandport.
The Ford Government is looking to expand liqour sales to about 200 underserved communities, with 60 new stores set to open this summer. That number will grow to 150 by the end of the year and even more will open in 2020.
Niagara West MPP Sam Oosterhoff says the stores will not only make buying more booze more convenient, but they will also create new jobs.
The province is also going to allow 87 more grocery stores to sell wine, beer and cider this September. This will bring the total number of authorized grocery stores up to 450.
