CTV News Winnipeg is reporting that a 7-Eleven located at 3031 Ness Avenue location in Winnipeg's Sturgeon Creek neighbourhood has been granted a licence to sell beer, wind, cider and ready-to-drink beverages to customers.

The licence was granted by the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba (LGCA) in June.

According to the report, the 7-Eleven location recently added a dining space allowing for the seating of up to 10 age-verified customers who can order and consume their alcoholic beverage on the premises.

While no official date has been announced for when beer, wind, cider and ready-to-drink beverages will begin to be sold at the location, this is not the first 7-Eleven location to do so. Several locations exist in Alberta serving alcoholic beverages. 

In June of 2023, 7-Eleven Canada announced it would be serving beer and wine to of-age customers at its 4025 Dorchester Rd., Niagara Falls, Ontario location, after securing a liquor sales licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). As with the Winnipeg 7-Eleven, the Niagara Falls store had been remodelled to provide patrons a space to dine-in.

7-Eleven Canada said in the report it will have several controls in place to maintain a safe environment, including that alcohol will be kept under lock and key and will only be served from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Staff will receive mandatory Smart Choices training, and be required to check the IDs of anyone who appears to be under 30.
