Guelph may soon be getting its first cannabis retail store.
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has selected a location in the city’s downtown core as one of the 42 applicants that can now apply for a cannabis retail store licence.
The proposed store address is 120 Wyndham St. North.
The application was one of 11 in the province’s west region to be selected through a lottery held by the AGCO on Tuesday.
The applicant, identified as John Reynolds on the regulator’s website, has until Aug. 28 to pay licensing fees and provide a letter of credit for $50,000 to the regulator.
The 42 new shops are expected to start opening in October.
A second location in Guelph at Victoria and York roads was named to a waitlist in the western region.
