The SAQ will be increasing the price of 1,827 products by 30 cents as of May 23, 2021, the company announced Tuesday.
But don't fret, because the SAQ is also decreasing prices on 700 products.
Another 586 products will remain at the same price.
Several factors are responsible for the price increases including higher duties on alcohol and higher freight charges on maritime transport, the company said.
"We’re committed to offering fair and competitive prices to our customers," said Catherine Dagenais, President and Chief Executive Officer of the SAQ.
"Our Category Management teams [...] [are] in touch with producers, suppliers and agents both here and abroad and they drive a hard bargain so we can offer our customers prices that are among the lowest in Canada, year in, year out."
