Bottle returns are still being accepted, however the number of stores accepting bottles and cans to return is limited.
When making these returns please rinse out all bottles and cans first and bring only one cart at a time. Lines will be formed with 6 ft distance between customers, and some drive thru bottle returns will be available at select stores on specific days. Please check the website thebeerstore.ca to see The Beer Store hours and where these will be available.
At a drive thru return you will pull up as directed and pop the truck without exiting the vehicle, or point out which door can be opened to retrieve your bottles, the staff will remove the returns and process them without you leaving the vehicle. When doing any returns there is an option to donate your returns to charity, the current charities being supported are hospitals and food banks to support our community in the best way possible during this time.
There will be additional changes within The Beer Store hours to help maintain social distance and to protect both staff and customers. There will be additional cleaning between customers, extra attention paid to sanitizing carts and totes, and new guidelines surrounding bottle and can returns.
To ensure everyone’s safety there are additional procedures in place. Cart and tote handles are disinfected between each customer, and The Beer Store staff have been provided with protective gear. There are also social distancing decals on the floor to help remind customers how far to remain apart. We do ask that you come with a list in mind of what you which to purchase, and only pick up items that you wish to purchase.
Anywhere wearing a face covering of any kind at any time may be asked to remove it to confirm their identity. This is important to ensuring all liquor control board rules are followed, as well as provincial laws on underage drinking and purchases. All The Beer Store stores have been fitted with plexiglass shields at the checkout areas, and these are likely to remain in place permanently. This provides a layer of protection for both staff and customers.
You may be asked to temporarily remove your face back to confirm your identity at the request of the cashier, as identification may need to be checked at time of purchase. They request that one shopper per family attend the store to pick up all your needs, as there will be a limit on how many people are in The Beer Store store at one time. There are now plexiglass shields in place at the cash to protect both the cashier and the shoppers, and while cash will still be accepted it is preferred to use debit or credit whenever possible to help prevent the spread of germs.
