They also do beer, even though the major-brewery-owned Beer Store does so too; they stay out of each other's space so that the LCBO sells the interesting beer and the Beer Store sells the Ontario and Canadian beer and the international stuff you'd buy in a 12- or 24-pack. Interestingly, the LCBO used to be a prohibitionist organization designed to make buying liquor inconvenient; now they're a huge profitable marketing machine.
