Marijuana vendor Hobo Recreational Cannabis Store, which says it has had $8.3 million in net sales since opening in April, is already set to expand.
The company says it has reached an agreement with a license lottery winner from August to open its second Ottawa store in the ByWard Market.
The store at 121 Clarence St. is described as a 5,000-square-foot, multi-level store. The company did not specify an opening date.
The Clarence Street site at Dalhousie Street was most recently the home of the Foreign Cinema restaurant.
Hobo, the cannabis division of Vancouver-based hospitality specialists Donnelly Group, says it has recorded 197,000 transactions at its Bank Street outlet since opening in April.
“The Ottawa community has been nothing shy of incredible and, thanks to their support, Hobo’s Centretown location is now Ontario’s top performing store,” said Donnelly Group vice-president Harrison Stoker in a release.
It was one of three shops originally approved for Ottawa. The other two are Fire & Flower in the Market and Superette in Wellington West.
