Mary J is Moving to Prince Rupert - Clarity Cannabis Coming Soon
Rupertites can get their rolling fingers ready as the first cannabis retail store is set to open before summer's end.
Clarity Cannabis is currently in the construction stage of their soon to open store in Prince Rupert's downtown.
Clarity Cannabis founder, Michael Forbes, is passionate about the benefits of plant based medicine and, having previously lived on Haida Gwaii, looks forward to once again serving the North coast.
"I used to own the pharmacy in Haida Gwaii and I have a house on Haida Gwaii, and so Prince Rupert was where that, you know, that kind of hub for Northern Health there for servicing those islands. And so, I just know that area and I'm from a small town myself, and I just like doing business there."
The shop, located in the old Carter's Jewellers, will have up to nine available jobs at the new location, and Forbes hopes the have the store open by late August or early September.
Clarity Cannabis has three stores open in Alberta and two in BC - Victoria Gorge and Dawson Creek - with six BC locations on the list of stores opening soon.
