The age of legal retail cannabis has arrived in Revelstoke.

Summit Cannabis Co. co-owner Chad Hollett opened the doors to their new retail location at 109 Connaught Avenue, just of First Street West, over the August long weekend.

Hollett said the store was very busy over the weekend despite the soft opening. He said they’re planning to have a grand opening this Friday, and in the interim staff are training up on the point of sale system.

Hollett said his B.C. cannabis retail licence application was number 47 on the list and that the company had waited many months for provincial approval.

The shop was originally slated as a Starbuds Canada location but the plan changed due to changes in the ownership of the company.

The shop carries a variety of flowered cannabis, oils, pre-rolls and smoking paraphernalia such as pipes, papers and vapes. Hollett said they’re in the process of stocking up and will be increasing their stock over the week.

The shop will be open seven days a week, but hours vary by the day. For more information, check the Summit Cannabis Co. website here.
