The Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) will open its retail stores every day as of next week.

The government-run organization made the announcement Thursday, saying all branches across the province will serve the public all week long starting on Monday, May 20.

The hours are the following:

  • From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
  • From 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday
  • From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday

In October, the provincial agency slashed its operating hours by nearly half at all stores. At the time, the SQDC announced that branches would be open from Wednesday until Sunday due to supply shortages.

The SQDC said on Thursday it now has a sufficient amount of cannabis products to meet the high demand and it will return to being open seven days per week.
