    All LCBO stores accept credit cards. The "general store" that you were at is an "agency" store, which is essentially a private store that has a permit to sell alcohol. These individual stores have their own policies, unfortunately.

    Allowing "Agency" stores was a limited experiment that, in my opinion, demonstrates why the LCBO should not be privatized. From my personal experience, these "Agency" stores do not uphold the same standards of service, and often fail to properly enforce the laws regarding the sale of alcohol (ie. demanding proper ID, not selling to minors, not selling to someone who is already intoxicated, etc).
