Alcohol in Alberta

Are the prices inclusive of taxes? In that, if a bottle say $50, when I get to the cash register, it will cost me $50?

Thanks!

Depends on the shop.

Some do include taxes/deposits/etc others don't.

It's not standardized.

If it's liquor depot, it'll be the $50, then GST, then the deposit. So it'll be $52.60 total.

I can't give a hard answer unfortunately.
I think they were, but I'm not sure so I'm just guessing at this point.
Not that anyone uses a phone anymore, but call them and they'll tell you for sure.

Yup to all 3.
Apparently as good as Grey Goose (and rumored to be bottled by them)
