How Electronic Shelf Labels Can Help Canadian Liquor Stores

On April 1, the Canadian federal government raised excise tax on alcohol by 6.3%, due to legislation passed in 2017, which automatically raises excise tax rates annually by the rate of inflation.

What this means: beer, wine, and spirits will cost more.

What this also means: liquor store staff will have to manually replace hundreds to thousands of paper tags to reflect this price change, which can take many hours or even days to complete.

But with electronic shelf labels, this process is fast and simple.

ESLs completely digitize the price update process.

They can change the price of everything in seconds with zero errors.

Canadian liquor stores need to invest in a good ESL system, like Smart Label Solutions™’, to prepare for and deal with the 2024 alcohol excise tax rate increase.
