The Thompson Local News


Plans are in the works for a cannabis retail store to be open in town by the end of the year.

 

Delta 9 Cannabis Inc., one of the four marijuana companies conditionally approved for sales here in Manitoba, say that Thompson is one of four locations that they are planning.

 

Delta 9 CEO John Arbuthnot said that Thompson may seem like an unattractive location to open up shop, but it’s strategically important as Thompson serves as the hub of the north.

 

Arbuthnot added that they will have an online portal available October 17th, the date of legalization, and that his company will offer mail order delivery to every corner of the province.

 

The company, which has a contract to supply over two million grams of cannabis provincial in the first year of legalization, says that they will be announcing the proposed location of the Thompson location at some point soon.

 

Delta 9 plans on opening two stores in Winnipeg and one in Brandon in addition to the Thompson location once marijuana becomes legal in October.
