New Liquor Mart Express Opens in South Winnipeg
Manitoba’s ninth Liquor Mart Express location opened last Friday in the Real Canadian Superstore at 215 St. Anne’s Road in Winnipeg.
“The Liquor Mart Express initiative boosts Manitoba’s liquor retail mix, with a strong focus on enhancing customer convenience,” said Ron Lemieux, Minister responsible for Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries. “These Express locations offer the friendly, knowledgeable service Liquor Marts are known for and Manitobans can have confidence that liquor is sold by in a socially responsible way.”
“Real Canadian Superstore is proud of our ability to provide Canadians with a convenient, one-stop shopping experience,” said Gord Chem, Senior Vice President, Real Canadian Superstore. “Our goal is to put great meals on the tables of Canadians and the addition of the Liquor Mart Express to our St. Anne’s store helps us to round out that offer.”
Moving forward, additional Liquor Mart Express stores to be developed will include both store-within-a-store and stand-alone locations, in both urban and rural locations, and will allow for more flexible options that will look beyond just grocery stores for other suitable Express store partners. It is anticipated that more Express stores will open next year.
The establishment of more Liquor Mart Express locations will consider the liquor retail options already available in a community and ensure that establishing an Express store complements existing retail options.
Like other Liquor Mart Express stores, the St. Anne’s Liquor Mart Express carries some of the most popular products in the province with approximately 470 listings of beers, wines, spirits and coolers.
The St. Anne’s Liquor Mart Express is open Monday to Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.; and on Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
