TORONTO — The Liquor Control Board of Ontario is launching an online site where people can purchase nearly 5,000 products and have them shipped to their home or a local LCBO store.

Finance Minister Charles Sousa says LCBO.com shows the government-owned liquor agency's commitment to evolve and modernize.

Sousa says the endless "virtual shelf space" will give people a huge selection of beer, wine and spirits right at their fingertips.

Purchases would be delivered to a local LCBO store for free or to a customer's home through Canada Post for a fee.

Sousa says wines from British Columbia and Quebec will also be available at LCBO.com thanks to an agreement reached last week by the premiers of the three provinces.

The LCBO says 800 of the products available online will be exclusive to LCBO.com and will not be available in any of their retail outlets.
