Ontario cannabis stores to close, online sales to continue

LCBOs and The Beer Store will remain open

All 52 of Ontario’s cannabis stores will be required to close this weekend, as the province has altered its list of essential businesses.

Stores will close as of 11:59 p.m. on Saturday. Online sales through the Ontario Cannabis Store will continue. Both the LCBO and The Beer Store will retain their essential business designation at this time.

The Ontario government made a number of changes to the essential business list on Friday. Restaurants that serve takeout and delivery will still be able to sell alcohol as well.
