Stop Theft

Our Priority is Safety.

Over the last several months, Liquor Marts have seen an increasing number of thefts in our Winnipeg locations. We know this is concerning and frustrating to our customers. It is concerning and frustrating to us as well. We take these thefts very seriously.

This problem is not unique to Liquor Marts. Retailers across the province are also experiencing increases in thefts and robberies.

The safety and security of our employees and customers is, and will remain, our number one priority. We will not risk anyone being seriously hurt over a bottle of spirits.

We have focused our efforts on security measures that protect our staff and customers and help catch thieves. These include:

  • State-of-the-art surveillance system
  • Security guards assigned to observing, detecting and deterring theft
  • Working closely with the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) to identify suspects using in-house technologies and intelligence
  • Use of WPS Special Constables at various Liquor Mart locations
  • Bag and photo ID checks upon entering the store
  • Safeguard measures for products most targeted by thieves
  • Security barriers at some Liquor Mart locations
  • Non-violent crisis intervention staff training that is standard at retailers across country

Steal and You Will Get Caught

In cooperation with the Winnipeg Police Service, we continue to focus on apprehending the most egregious offenders. These collaborative efforts have resulted in 113 arrests since October 2018.

Frequently Asked Questions

Manitoba Liquor Mart processes more than 11 million transactions annually. With this number of transactions, the Consumers Distributing model is not feasible, especially at peak times of days and at holidays. Also, our research shows consumers want to look at and touch the product while they make their purchase decisions. And with customer satisfaction levels of 94%, it’s clear that Liquor Mart customers enjoy their current shopping experience. We anticipate the additional security measures we’re putting in place will help to deter would-be thieves.
