Cannabis NB has expanded its store network to include new stores in Saint John and Moncton, New Brunswick. The Saint John location at 20 Plaza Ave opened September 30, and the Moncton location at 50 Granite Drive opened Thursday, October 6.
The expansion of the store network is part of Cannabis NB’s model evolution project which will provide more convenience to consumers and better access to safe legal products for customers in New Brunswick. It will also increase revenue for the province, and create jobs in new communities.
“We are pleased to be adding these new locations to our network,” says Lori Stickles, President & CEO of Cannabis NB. “The new stores will provide our customers in those areas with better access to safe, regulated products, as well as access to our knowledgeable team members to guide them through their purchases.”
The new Saint John and Moncton locations are the final two out of six Cannabis NB stores opened around the province over the summer and fall to improve customer convenience and access to legal product. That puts the store count at 27 in New Brunswick.
The locations are slightly smaller than the original corporate stores, but still offer all Cannabis NB’s most popular products as well as the latest offering in edibles, dry flower, topicals, seeds and accessories.
Last month, Cannabis NB began the next step in its model evolution which involves expanding the retail offering in New Brunswick to include private retail stores. Private retail is key in advancing Cannabis NB’s strategy to increase convenience and legal access in new, underserved areas of the province.
A tender process for private retail was launched from September 6 to October 5. More information on the Cannabis NB’s retail model evolution is available here.
