A marijuana chain is looking to open up shop in the City of Windsor.
Starbuds Canada say it’s secured two retail locations in the province, as it looks to set up recreational pot shops in Ontario.
The decision to expand in the region comes after it was reported the Ontario government will allow private stores to sell marijuana, once recreational cannabis becomes legal on Oct. 17.
“Our goal is to make this a higher-end shopping experience, and something that targets different demographics than maybe the expectation would be, so your soccer moms, your professionals, people of that nature,” said Dave Martyn, president of Starbuds.
The company was founded in the U.S. in 2013, and became one of the first to receive licensing in Colorado when marijuana became legal. Starbuds has shops all over the state, and eventually expanded in Canada.
