Cannabis Jacks is now officially open for business as the Sault's second cannabis retail store celebrates its grand opening Friday.
The storefront is located at 518 Great Northern Road, the former site of Payless Shoe Source.
Its hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Sunday hours are 12-5 p.m.
According to the company's website, Cannabis Jacks also has plans to expand to Sudbury and North Bay, in addition to four locations in other parts of Ontario.
“Eventually Cannabis Jack’s will be in other cities across the province, but our focus is really on the Sault right now,” Cannabis Jacks President Michael Birch told SooToday earlier this summer.
