Ontario’s liquor retailer is urging residents to stock up early this holiday season to prevent any supply chain-induced disappointments. The LCBO says transportation issues and the “ongoing considerations of COVID-19,” including changes to consumer demand, have led to a booze shortage. The Crown corporation’s chief supply chain officer says imported products are more likely to be affected. Nick Nanos says that includes some champagnes; wines from New Zealand, Australia and South America; as well as tequila and scotch. He says the LCBO will continue to have a selection of international products, but those who have a particular drink in mind should shop early.
