Seasonal Themes

This year, the holidays will mean even more to our customers. While the pandemic had a significant impact on our holiday experiences in 2020, Ontarians are hopeful things will look different this year. So, as family, friends and colleagues reconnect, the LCBO will help our customers make the most of this very special season. With renewed excitement around finding and giving the perfect gifts, the LCBO will secure our position as the gifting destination and make it as easy as possible for our customers to find the perfect gift and make holiday moments great again.

The Holiday 2021 campaign will bring our “DISCOVER” brand experience pillar to life by elevating what it means to give and receive a gift from the LCBO. Across all customer touchpoints, we will showcase our best gifts at every price, from tried-and-true favourite brands to premium and unique products. And, we’ll curate exceptional gifting experiences to make giving a gift of beverage alcohol special and thoughtful.

Curating exceptional experiences will come to life in two ways:

With a focus on premiumization

This year we want to elevate, not only the products we offer but also the gifting experiences we create. This will allow us to focus on both premium and unique products that our customers can trade up to, as well as customer favourites that can be offered in a more premium way.

With compelling sales events

We will launch themed sales events that reflect what consumers are looking for during this period. Through these events, we’ll demonstrate how our products make special gifts and make it easy to choose the perfect products for entertaining.
