Original Article: It’s an exciting time to live, work, and play in the Lonsdale Avenue corridor. With new businesses and stores opening up in preparation for the 2019 Christmas season things are looking bright for local shopping. And with that said, we are going to be getting our very own Cannabis Retail Store in Lower Lonsdale located at 223 West 1st Street called 1st Cannabis.
Founders of the retail location Brian and Allan Riedlinger are also co-owners of the famous Sailor Hagar’s Pub and Liquor Store, which has been around for decades. A little known fact about the pub is that they brewed some of the first IPA craft beer in British Columbia back in 1984. So of course they have tons of experience with trail blazing and running successful retail stores. Not only did they pave the way for local craft breweries, they are now paving the way for recreational Cannabis sales.
1st Cannabis is a 150 square foot retail store that is currently getting remodelled to best serve the needs of clients and the community, and they are also starting with their hiring process so if you know anyone who is looking for a job as a budtender, store manager or similar you will want to get in touch with them through their Instagram profile or visiting the store.
