Little Short Stop Sees Local Benefits for Waterloo Region with Beer Retailing Reforms

“We’re a local, family-owned business that has served the Waterloo and Wellington Regions for over 50 years. We pride ourselves on giving our customers that old fashioned “corner store” experience that is hard to find in this day and age. We do our best to greet our customers by name, remember their favorite items, and serve them quickly if they’re in a hurry.

The passage of Bill 115, Bringing Choice and Fairness to the People Act (Beverage Alcohol Retail Sales), 2019 is great news for small business in the Waterloo Region. We’ve got some amazing craft brewers here, and our stores are a perfect match to help promote their products. Local small business helping to support other local small businesses. With the Beer Store set to see some real competition for the first time in 92 years, we think consumers are going to be the first winner – with more choice and convenience on the horizon. And as we get the opportunity to stock local brewers in our stores, we bet it will mean more jobs and growth in our region.”
