However, the SAQ has cancelled its "second increase normally scheduled for November," according to a statement.

The first increases of the year are usually scheduled for May, but the Crown corporation decided to postpone them due to the pandemic.

The company remains "committed to always offering fair and competitive prices for the products it markets" and "negotiates closely with its suppliers to offer the lowest prices in Canada."
