Starting Monday, Quebec’s retail cannabis shops will be open all week.
The Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) had to close its outlets Mondays to Wednesdays soon after pot was legalized in Canada last October, as it struggled to keep up with demand. In February, the shops reopened on Wednesdays but remained closed two days a week.
Now, the provincial corporation says that its supply is reliable enough to allowing existing shops to return to their original hours.
In Montreal, that includes the outlets in downtown Montreal, the Saint Hubert Plaza and Acadie Boulevard.
The head of the SQDC said last year that the agency would delay opening new shops while the provincial government revises its pot legislation.
