The Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC) has announced eight names and locations of qualified applicants from the recent Licensed Cannabis Retailer (LCR) RFP.
The provincial agency announced earlier this year their plans for adding up to 16 new retail cannabis locations to its current count of 30. The RFP opened earlier this year and closed on May 11, with an expected open date for new stores on Sept 1, 2021.
The agency selected several geographic areas in the Province to better serve Newfoundlanders. Applicants were encouraged to describe any plans for online ordering, click and collect, as well as home delivery and drive-through (only for some locations). Some locations may also potentially be allowed to open a cannabis retailer inside an existing non-cannabis store.
