Highly anticipated opening weekend

Golden became home to two legal cannabis retail stores this weekend, when Quartz Creek Cannabis and Canyon Creek Cannabis opened their doors to the public for the first time.

Quartz Creek, which opened it’s doors on Friday, November 15 had a busy opening day, with a steady stream of customers coming through the doors throughout the day. Located at 616 8th Avenue N in the new Mount 7 Spirits distillery building, Quartz Creek Cannabis is owned by Chris Messervey, who is excited about what legal cannabis will bring to Golden.

“It’s awesome to finally get a shop here, I’m a little nervous, but other than that it’s good,” said Messervey. “There’s about eight or 10 people in here at any give moment throughout today, so it’s going well.”

Canyon Creek Cannabis had a similar opening day when it opened it’s doors the following day. Located at 828 10th Avenue S, Canyon Creek Cannabis has a focus on local B.C. products, and has been outfitted inside with wooden counter tops that were sourced from local lumber.

“Opening day has been fantastic, the support from the community has been unbelievable,” said Merrick. “We’re so excited and we’re so happy, we’re just ecstatic about this!”

Bringing legal cannabis to Golden provides shop owners with the opportunity to educate their customers on cannabis, and create a safer culture around cannabis.

Both shops offer important information on their products and are ready to answer any questions customers may have, in order to find a product that suits their needs.
