Hamilton lands three new stores in pot-shop lottery

Huge Shops Ontario Inc. has been selected to apply for a retail operator licence for a cannabis store at 566 Frank Hill Road in Fowlers Corner. Huge Shops is a Toronto-based cannabis retailer that has a strategic alliance with Chairman's Brands pare

Ontario held its second lottery Tuesday to select operators hoping to run cannabis retail stores in the province.

According to the website, Miszuk lists the proposed address of a store at 317 Northern Avenue E., the same plaza as Domino's Pizza.

The winners have until August 28 to complete the Ontario government application form to open the store.

A victor has also been announced in Guelph - for a proposed location at 120 Wyndham Street North.

While the lottery winners are expected to open the store at the location stated on their application, a commission spokesperson said applicants could request to operate at a different address in the same region "due to extenuating circumstances".

Once the AGCO receives the applications for licence and authorization, residents in the community have an opportunity to provide written submissions if they believe the location of a store is not in the public interest, under the Cannabis Licence Act.

Another set of Kitchener and Guelph applicants also earned spots on the wait list.


The AGCO has placed the applicants not selected in the lottery on Wait Lists for each Region, based on the order in which they were drawn.

Earlier this year Sault Ste.

The location of the proposed pot shop is also being supported by the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association.

The Garden City is already home to Niagara's first retail cannabis store, The Niagara Herbalist at 33 Lakeshore Rd., Unit 15. Slightly more than 100 were disqualified, a further 124 withdrawn and four incomplete.

North Bay has its first cannabis outlet, and it could open as soon as October says the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario in a news release.

The provincial government has said the phased-in approach is necessary due to supply issues.
