If the province allows beer to be sold at your local corner store, be prepared to pay more.

A research paper done by the Beer Store will be released on Monday, and it claims that you'll be paying an average of $10 more for a two-four if convenience stores begin selling them.

The Toronto Sun obtained a copy of the foreword of the paper.

An economist who reviewed the research says increasing the outlets for the same customer base, will raise your average cost.

The same economist, Greg Flanagan also believes that the price structure on booze set up by the government, will only see the cost of alcohol rise.

PC leader Tim Hudak has said he wants to end the monopoly on beer and liquor sales in Ontario.

The Sun spoke to the Ontario Convenience Stores Association about it, and the president pointed out that they never said it would be cheaper, but just more convenient.
