NSLC goes cashless, limits customer numbers amid COVID-19 pandemic

In its latest bid to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation is going cashless.

The NSLC announced Thursday on social media that effective immediately, customers will have to pay by debit or credit card in all of its locations.

It’s also implementing new social distancing measures, asking patrons to bag their own products and stay away from the cashiers, while capping the number of people allowed in a store at a given time.

“We appreciate our customers respecting this measure as we work together to balance safety with being able to provide service,” said the Crown corporation via Twitter.

This is the second round of precautions being taken by the NSLC to uphold government requests to minimize public gatherings and proximity between people.

Earlier this week, the corporation reduced its store hours to between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday, with province-wide closures on Sundays.
