There has been a steady lineup outside a strip mall in south-end Sudbury since Saturday morning.
That’s when northern Ontario’s first cannabis store — Canna Cabana — opened its doors on Long Lake Road.
“We’ve got a big store, with a lot of product and the ability to get more product as we need it,” co-owner Michael Hogewoning said.
“We’re not worried about maintaining the inventory for the crowd. We might not have everything all the time. But in general, we’re not going to run out. We’re prepared for it.”
The store was closed for the Easter Sunday holiday, but reopened Monday, again with a long and steady lineup of customers outside.
Amit Singhla is a sales associate, who was stationed outside the store Monday.
He told CBC News that once inside, each customer gets one-on-one attention from a sales associate.
A visit can last between 15 to 30 minutes depending on the customer’s experience with cannabis.
