FAQ: What is the difference between the LCBO tab and the Collated LCBO tab?

In the Industry reporting section, you'll find up the three tabs - LCBO, TBS, and Collated LCBO. The LCBO and TBS tabs report on competitive industry data purchased from the respective retailers.

Collated LCBO is data that has been collected and calculated based on daily inventory changes. Collated LCBO data is provided to all DigThisData subscribers and is included in all plans.

Collated LCBO data only includes retail store sales. It will not calculate licensee, agency, grocery or any other type of sales that the purchased LCBO data (Option 5) may contain. Additionally, this data is NOT scraped from the LCBO website, but rather calculated from the Master Inventory file. For this reason, TBS Collated data is not possible since there is currently no published TBS master inventory file.
