The Provincial government has introduced a regulatory change that will allow hospitality customers to purchase liquor at the wholesale price beginning July 20, 2020. This temporary change – which will be in effect until March 31, 2021 – was approved to provide support to the liquor and hospitality operators significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Manufacturers who sell direct to hospitality customers (bars, restaurants, hotels, etc.) must also charge the wholesale price as of July 20, 2020.
To assist vendors, agents and suppliers in aligning their prices, the LDB is extending its price change submission deadline until 5 p.m. on June 24th, 2020 for Period 5/August. The price change/s will take effect on August 2nd.
