Vanderhoof will have a cannabis store soon

Job postings for the Vanderhoof BC Cannabis Store are online now

Editor’s note — A correction was made to the story at 10:58 am on Monday, July 29. The store location is not going to be within the same complex as the BC Liquor store in Vanderhoof. It will infact be a different store altogether at 2444 Burrard Avenue.

Vanderhoof will have a non-medical cannabis store soon and negotiations for the same are underway.

Kate Bilney, senior communications officer, corporate communications & stakeholder relations for BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) said they are currently working with the landlord of the property on 2444 Burrard Avenue to finalize lease negotiations and to determine a hand-over date.

Once the property is handed over to LDB, Bilney said, the crown corporation will begin construction of a complex to appropriately develop the space to suit their needs.

The store will be a standalone retail store, she said, adding that as per the provincial Cannabis Control and Licensing Act, non-medical cannabis retail stores cannot be co-located with another business.

“We will be leasing a separate unit for the BC Cannabis Store and the current BC Liquor Store will remain at its current location,” she said.

At this time there is no firm date on when the Vanderhoof BC Cannabis Store will open, she said.

Once the store opens, it will employ 10 to 14 employees including a store manager, two assistant store managers and knowledgeable cannabis consultants. The job postings for the store are active now and for more information visit www.bcldb.com/about/careers.
