I work at a convenience store and we NEVER close (not even for christmas or any other holiday) and we were told since we were all within 10-20 min walking distance (on a good day i may add) we were expected to show up for work during this storm no matter what no excuses. Shows how much our manager/owner cares about our safety. they werent even there all weekend until sunday afternoon when the weather was a bit better.

food stores,drug stores gas etc is very important to be open but drunks are not a life saving place to be opened. but when the police are asking people to stay off the roads they are looking at safety. how many cars are stuck in snow banks due to trying to get to work? and if a person is killed due to trying to get to the store is it worth it.

Don, the liquor store was not the only store open during weekend storm. Superstore, Sobeys, convenience stores, gas stations, coffee shops were all open. Besides who are you to tell other people they can't have a drink when they want one? One more thing, if you have a job and get paid for it, you also make a profit. Are you doing wrong by making money?

Oak Tree liquor store in Charlottetown. opened just shows how much the lives of staff and islanders means to government = NOTHING. but profit is all that maters. but i guess it shows there is more drunks in ch'town then any where else on PEI as the other liquor stores closed.
