Manitobans will have more time to buy booze next weekend.

The Manitoba Liquor Control Commission announced it is extending its hours at many of its locations across the province for the Thanksgiving weekend.

For Winnipeggers, that means select locations will be open until midnight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the long weekend.

On Oct. 10, 11 and 12 the Garden City, Portage Avenue and Ainslie Street, River Avenue and Osborne Street, Kenaston Crossing, St. Vital and Eastwinds locations will all be open until midnight.

Another handful of locations will stay open an extra hour until 11 p.m. on those nights.

Sunday will see normal operating hours for all Winnipeg locations, and on Monday, Oct. 14, all Winnipeg locations will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., except for Cityplace.

Brandon locations will also be open late over the Thanksgiving weekend.
