The Beer Store hopes to make access even easier for customers by opening up mobile stores in various areas of Ontario, including Port Colborne.
“They want to take advantage of the travelling public,” Dan Aquilina, Port Colborne’s director of planning and development, said at Monday night’s city council meeting.
The company is looking to temporarily open “mobile stores” or large converted trailers, at tourist destinations during peak periods of the year, he said.
The Beer Store was originally looking to lease from the city property at 105 Main St. W. Though the lease was approved by council on Monday night, the company has decided to instead move forward with a temporary location at Sherkston Shores — pending approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
The Beer Store has gained approval from Niagara Regional Police to set up at the popular resort.
