Kimberley’s Chamber of Commerce is pleased that the Bavarian City is home to the province’s first private licensed retail cannabis store.
Tamarack Cannabis Boutique opened it’s doors last week to become the first in the province to open since the drug was legalized last month.
Chamber executive director Mike Guarnery says the store has been a great corporate citizen in the community.
“Tamarack has certainly been at the forefront of supporting local not-for-profits and other charities that have come forward to them,” Guarnery says.
Guarnery adds the chamber appreciates all of its members.
“I think it says a lot for our community moving forward,” Guarnery says. “This was coming down from the Federal election three years ago when this was stated. We’ve taken care of our businesses that are in that industry.”
This is not the first time Tamarack has made history as it was the first medical dispensary to receive a business license from its municipality a few years ago.
