One of London’s first pot shops, Central Cannabis, is expecting line-ups during its inaugural day in business.
Owned by Chris Comrie and run by consulting company Corner Cannabis, the shop at 666 Wonderland Rd. North is one of three in London to secure permission to open through a provincial lottery in January and appears to be the only one ready for customers on Monday.
There’s been a “Coming April 1, 2019” sign on the business plaza’s boulevard at the corner of Wonderland and Oxford Street for weeks now.
J London at 691 Richmond Street, owned by Ranjit Basra, has been issued a retail operator licence and retail store authorization, according to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) website. Tweed, a numbered company at 1025 Wellington Rd. is still waiting on those authorizations, but its public notice period has come to an end.
