Finance Minister Vic Fedeli said some of the stores will open as soon as August. “By opening up more alcohol retail outlets across the province we are not only making life easier for people, we are enabling economic opportunities for hundreds of new businesses … and jobs across the province in the booming beer and wine sector,” he said.
