    SAQ Strike ?

    Hello !

    f.y.i.

    I'm in Montreal, and I have noticed 2 of the SAQ Stores are Closed (1108 St Catherine near Peel, and 998 Maisonneuve).

    I did find the SAQ @ 440 Maisonneuve opened.

    Thanks !

    SAQ Strike

    When I was in Montreal last week I went to the SAQ near de Maissoneuve and Aylmer and I saw a protest/strike going on outside and numerous security guards near the front entrance. I was told that the store would not open until noon so I went to the IGA at Complex Desjardins to buy the liquor I needed.

    I don't know what the dispute is all about.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I'll be sure to stock up at the duty free store on my way up next week.

    Saq

    One should go to the outlet on Atwater near the market!
    Cannot believe buying wine at a Metro or Provigo or IGA...luckily enough you appear to have survived the experience!

    Wine at IGA

    Lawless,

    I bought two bottles of relatively inexpensive red wine at the IGA. One was an Italian table wine and the other a locally bottled Quebec red wine. Both were well received by the SPs to whom they were served.

    I also bought some chocolates at the IGA.

    I was very surprised that I was not able to find beef jerky at the IGA. Maybe I just missed it.

    The IGA did have a wonderful selection of cheese.
