We opened our first store on April 26th, 2019 at 11 am.
Well, truth be told, we were a little bit delayed and opened our doors closer to 11:45.
That’s about the time we met Lex Steenkist.
We’d seen Lex patiently waiting outside our store as we fixed some last minute kinks before we could serve our first customer. He waited and waited until we finally announced that we were ready to open our doors.
Mr. Steenkist hurried towards the door and beat out the others to be the first in line
We didn’t know it, but for Mr. Steenkist, that day was as special as it was for us.
‘I’ve been waiting for this moment since 1966’, the Hamilton native told us.
A moment like that put all of this into context. Our store was a milestone for people who had waited their entire lives for cannabis to be treated with respect, and we’ll never ever forget that.
With them in mind, it is our goal to continue to destigmatize cannabis in this community, and do our part to raise acceptance around the world. We know we the incredible privilege that’s been given to us in becoming one of Ontario’s first retail cannabis stores.
We’re going to do our best to build the world’s most positive cannabis retail experience.
