K-W in brief
First local drive-thru Beer Store opens in Kitchener
The Beer Store located at 250 Bleams Rd. in Kitchener is now accessible to customers through a drive-thru option, which was opened at the beginning of February. This is the third of its kind in Ontario, with the other two drive-thrus located in Hamilton and London. Sales are still accepted through the storefront. This location was favoured for a drive-thru based on the heavy amount of traffic it receives, with 25, 000 hectolitres per year. The drive-thru provides all normal sale services, but does not accept empties. The next Beer Store drive-thru is expected to open next year in Woodstock, Ontario.
Clocks set to ‘spring ahead’ this weekend
