If you're running late for a pot luck and have to pick up some food, you might be able to find your favourite beer at your grocery store.

The province is calling on major chains to be part of a pilot project, which would see "LCBO Express" outlets pop up across the province. They would sell beer, wine and spirits.

Right now, the pilot project will be at 10 yet-to-be-determined stores in areas of the GTA, Niagara and Ottawa. They'll be located at supermarkets where there is no LCBO in the area.

But don't think of it as finding your favourite Ontario Wine, next to the cream cheese. Finance Minister Charles Sousa says the kiosks will have their separate space and checkout.

He says you'll be able to find this in larger chains that have 2,000 square feet for the stores.

The province hopes these 10 locations will be opened within a year.

Sousa brushed aside questions that he was trying to change the channel from the gas plant scandal.
