A 'range of options': Thunder Bay's first cannabis store set to open Monday
Tokyo Smoke will open to the public on Monday at 1082 Memorial Avenue
Thunder Bay's first cannabis store is set to open its doors next week.
Tokyo Smoke is scheduled to officially open its 3,400-square-foot store at 1082 Memorial Ave. to the public at 9 a.m. Monday.
The store will provide an educational experience for shoppers, said Melissa Gallagher, director of franchising for Canopy Growth, the company that owns the Tokyo Smoke brand.
Gallagher said an Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) inspection of the store still needs to take place prior to its opening.
That inspection is scheduled to take place Friday, with Gallagher adding the company is "very confident" the store will pass.
Tokyo Smoke partnered with licensees Rick Bohonis and Michael Rodenburgh to bring the store to the city.
Gallagher said the Thunder Bay Tokyo Smoke store will employ 25 people, and will be open 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. seven days a week.
