Warehouse and Distribution
The AGLC establishes policies and authorizes
operators for the warehousing and distribution of liquor products
in the province. The AGLC has an office at each of the warehouses
to ensure that the mark-up is collected
on all products sold.

coolers and imported beer in Alberta. Its bonded warehouse

The current distribution infrastructure for spirits, wine and imported beer consists of five separate facilities – the main warehouse in St. Albert and four storage warehouses in Edmonton – and is no longer able to support the continuing growth of the province’s privatized liquor industry. To ensure a reliable and efficient supply of liquor products, the AGLC is proceeding with plans to build a new liquor distribution centre.
