A month after pot shops began opening in Ontario, the doors for Fabulous Leaf in Oshawa remain closed.
Tripsetter Inc. won one of 25 Ontario cannabis store licences via lottery and opted to open a store at 575 Laval Dr. in Oshawa near the Stevenson Rd. highway interchange.
Although the public notice period for the store closed, Fabulous Leaf is one of three stores that have yet to have their retail operator licence issued.
“It’s at the week-to-week level now,” said Fabulous Leaf owner Jacob Stevens. “We’re completing our requirements as per the AGCO (Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario).”
Lottery participants were required to submit a $50,000 letter of credit that was to be drawn down by the AGCO if stores failed to open on time.
