"When we launched the original buck-a-beer back in 1992, customers were so excited about a quality product at an affordable price we couldn't keep it on shelves," said Ian Gordon, Senior Vice President, President's Choice.  "It's been a decade since the end of buck-a-beer in Ontario, but our brand has continued to deliver great taste at exceptional value in other provinces. With the change in pricing rules here, we were excited to help our customers in Ontario celebrate this long weekend."
