The original version of this story listed only four new Ottawa locations for beer and cider sales in grocery stores. The fifth, at 3900 Innes Rd., was missing.

The Ontario government has approved 76 new grocery stores to sell beer and cider, including five new locations in Ottawa.

The new stores include Moncion's Your Independent Grocer on River Road, the Farm Boy at 1642 Merivale Rd., the Farm Boy 3033 Woodroffe Ave., the Walmart Supercentres at 2210 Bank St and at 3900 Innes Rd.

Beer and cider will be available at the new locations starting June 30.

The new locations will be in addition to the eight Ottawa grocers approved to sell alcohol in December 2015 as part of an Ontario government pilot project.
