The province of New Brunswick has announced the locations of 11 cannabis retail stores ahead of the scheduled July 2018 legalization of recreational marijuana.

New Brunswick originally issued tenders for 20 locations. The president and CEO of NB Liquor, the Crown corporation that will be operating the stores, says the remaining nine locations have been re-tendered.

“The remaining locations have been re-tendered for the nine areas, allowing for those who did not get a chance to submit the first time around to do so at this time,” said Brian Harriman, in a news release.
