Sauble Beach may be getting its first bricks-and-mortar cannabis store sometime later this year, as an application has been submitted to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario for a shop on Main Street.
A spokesperson for the AGCO says the application for Moonfire Cannabis at 329 Main Street in Sauble Beach is in progress, but has yet to reach the public notice stage.
Residents of the community will have an opportunity to submit comments to the AGCO when it does reach the 15-day public notice period.
The proposed pot shop in Sauble Beach is one of seven different applications in Grey and Bruce counties currently before the AGCO, alongside two in Owen Sound, two in Port Elgin, one in Southampton and one in Walkerton.
An AGCO spokesperson says the eligibility and due diligence process for these proposed locations continues and each store is at a different stage. It remains unknown when the process will conclude.
