Summit Cannabis Makes Revelstoke's First Legal Pot Sales

Connaught

The first legal cannabis sales in Revelstoke got going over the weekend.

Summit Cannabis - Revelstoke's first pot store - held a soft opening starting Saturday.

Owner Chad Hollett says that it was a busy few days "From Saturday through Monday we had almost 500 transactions, so you're looking at 150 people a day coming through in a half day span - five to six hours each day."

A grand opening is planned for this Friday.

Hollett also had word on staffing plans, saying "Beginning here we have six of us. We figure we'll get up to about 10 employees - six full time and four part-time."
