SAQ agency stores are food retailers (grocery and convenience stores) authorized to sell SAQ products in their store. Agency stores are located in municipalities that do not have an SAQ store. They give locals improved access to SAQ products.
The SAQ has some 430 agency stores across Quebec. When these agency stores are added to the SAQ’s network of stores, the government corporation has nearly 840 points of sale, making it one of the most accessible retailers in Quebec.
