Labrador’s only licensed cannabis store has temporarily shut its doors after less than two weeks in business.
The owners of High North in Labrador City have not received a cannabis shipment in days, and they say it’s costing too much money to keep the store staffed without product on the shelf.
“When it comes down to paying salaries and losing money, we just had to make a decision we felt was best for us.,” said Brenda Tobin, who co-owns the store with her son, Trevor Tobin.
Like retailers all over the country, High North quickly found itself short on cannabis supply. Trevor Tobin said they only received a fraction of their first order and everything on hand sold in three hours.
Another order arrived a few days later, but again, the store sold out in just one hour.
