Quebec's corner-store beer sales translate into better deals than those in Ontario
Every week, says Chris Wilcox, his neighbour in Ottawa drives over the bridge to Gatineau, Que., to buy a case of beer at the Costco warehouse.
Why? Because he can get 24 bottles of Coors Light, or any other popular premium brand, for just $28.20, including taxes and deposit. That's a savings of nearly $9 a case over the regular price of the same brand in Ontario, or the equivalent of 25 per cent off.
