BC Liquor Stores is a responsible retailer of beverage alcohol and we take our responsibility seriously—it's an integral part of providing a high level of customer service, education and customer experience. Ultimately, our responsibility is to promote the responsible use of beverage alcohol, to help reduce our impact on the environment and to give back to the communities we serve.
Responsible use means moderate consumption, enforcing legal age of drinking, promoting zero tolerance (for drinking and driving or performing sports activites and during pregnancy). Initiatives in stores and online include a monthly awareness campaign of different responsible use topics, providing food pairings where possible with the products we sell and providing tips to hosts and event planners. Responsible use is important to us and is an integral part of our business.
