Invermere is still open to cannabis retailers to set-up shop.
This after District Council recently denied an application for a cannabis retail store to be set-up directly adjacent to Pothole Park.
Mayor Allen Miller says council could not approve the application due to the store being in a residential area.
He says a couple of applications for business are in the pipeline though.
“We’ve already had one business down in the Athalmere area that was set-up over a year and a half ago. They are reapplying I understand,” Miller says. “I understand there’s another application for Parkside Place coming in. We haven’t seen it though.”
The company whose application was denied was refunded all fees and will get another opportunity to apply once they find a more suitable location.
