Kimberley’s two cannabis dispensaries are applying to become retail stores.
Mayor Don McCormick says the city is taking feedback from residents who may be affected by the change.
“We’re asking comments to be solicited on anyone who is either impacted or feels they’re impacted by the opening or the licensing of these two stores.”
Tamarack Cannabis Boutique’s hours would be from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and Earth’s Own Naturals would operate from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
McCormick says the city has not had any issues with the two businesses which have been operating in the city for a few years.
“They both have been in business for a fairly long period of time. They have been exemplary corporate citizens, we have had zero issues with either of those businesses or the products surrounding those businesses. We fully expect the province will issue those licenses.”
Both businesses have applied for the change through the Provincial Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch.
Feedback must be submitted to the city by October 4.
