BC Gov News- “Alcohol may be on the menu for more businesses in B.C.”

Wouldn’t a spa day be even more relaxing with a mimosa in hand? Is there any better way to take the stress out of getting a new ‘do than with a pint? This type of dream will soon be a possible reality as new policy changes from the Province will allow all types of B.C. businesses to apply for a liquor licence, opening up possibilities for new revenue streams and diversified business services– and even happier customers.

Effective Jan. 23, 2017, businesses like barber shops, salons, spas, cooking schools, art galleries and book stores will be able to apply for a liquor licence to diversify their business model and serve liquor to customers. All types of businesses will be able to apply for a liquor primary licence, so long as they do not operate from a motor vehicle or target minors. This change will provide flexibility for businesses to expand and offer new services to their patrons, while creating new opportunities for manufacturers such as craft breweries and wineries to sell their product, and increase consumer choice for British Columbians.
