NLC’s Update to COVID-19

March 31, 2020

NLC’s primary focus remains on the health and safety of its employees and customers. As such, Corporate NLC Liquor Stores remain closed to the general public until further notice. In consultation with its partners at NAPE and Government, NLC is providing a temporary service, which allows for the ordering and pick up of product at Corporate NLC Liquor Store locations.

Customers may order by calling their preferred NLC Liquor Store directly or by completing an order online at Please note that the following stores are not available for this service:

  • Queen Street Liquor Store, St. John’s
  • Murphy Square satellite store, Corner Brook
  • Trans Canada Highway satellite store, Clarenville
  • Centennial Square satellite store, Mount Pearl
  • Lake Avenue satellite store, St. John’s
  • Newfoundland Drive satellite store, St. John’s

To ensure the safety and well-being of staff and customers and to reduce the potential for spread of COVID-19, NLC has taken the following additional measures:

  • Accepting non-cash methods of payment only – via debit and credit card. While we strongly encourage the use of TAP, pin pads are available, and will be sanitized before and after each transaction.
  • Serving one customer at a time and enforcing appropriate social distancing both inside and outside of stores;
  • Not accepting redeemable offers such as beer caps and coupons – these may be redeemed at a later time
  • Plexiglass partitions have now been installed at all pick-up lanes.
  • When placing an order for pick-up, customers are advised that orders will be kept for a maximum of 24 hours after their assigned pick-up time. After this time, the order will be voided and product returned to inventory.

We appreciate your patience, as we continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and adjust our services and approach accordingly.

Please note that as Liquor Express stores are under management of private operators, these locations may be open for business at this time.
