It’s a race against time to get two pot stores in Kingston ready to open on April 1.
“They are working night and day as far as we can tell. And that is what the neighbour businesses report as well,” says Doug Richie, managing director of the Downtown Kingston BIA.
With less than 10 days to go, renovations to both downtown pot shops have reached a fever pitch.
At the new Spiritleaf location at the corner of Princess and Ontario streets, the work continues inside.
“I’ve had a peek in at one location already and they are going to be beautiful stores,” says Richie.
“Honestly, we have no objections to it,” says Guy Paquette, owner of Bagot Leather Goods & Luggage Plus.
