Nine more Cannabis NB store locations announced

The provincial government has announced the final nine locations which will sell cannabis.

Of the nine new Cannabis NB retail stores, seven are at new developments that don't have civic addresses yet.

The locations are on Woodside Lane in Fredericton, Marr Road in Rothesay, Victoria Road in Edmundston, Wright Street in Sackville, Main Street in Shediac, Allée de la Cooperative in Richibucto, 528 Principale Street in Tracadie, Tribe Road in Perth-Andover, and 157 Water Street in Campbellton.

The nine locations were awarded through a competitive tendering process, and government says they were based on population demographics, liquor sales transactions and traffic patterns.

Today's announcement brings the total number of Cannabis NB stores to twenty, after eleven were announced in December.
