Second marijuana store applies for license in Terrace

High Point Cannabis Ltd. is one of seven stores looking at Terrace’s downtown

A new Terrace company is looking to open a cannabis retail store here.

High Point Cannabis Ltd. has already picked out a vacant retail space in the Gobind Mall which was most recently occupied by the Skeena Waters Fly Shop.

The city says they do not request shareholders names in business applications, but understands the store will be locally owned and operated.

The company has submitted all required documents to the city and a public hearing was held Feb. 25 at city hall. One resident raised a concern about High Point Cannabis Ltd. being located in the U.S., but it was explained to be a separate company altogether. Concerns about increased traffic and congestion have been forwarded to the RCMP.

City council must now vote to approve the application and refer it back to the BC Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch (LCRB) for final license approval.

The store is one of seven recreational marijuana stores looking at coming to Terrace’s downtown. High Point Cannabis Ltd. is the only private business so far to pass the province’s initial background check.

Deviant Fibres, a hemp product store on Lakelse Avenue is still going through the process. Co-owner Aman Singh says she’s in the last stages of submitting her licence application to the LCRB.

Recently, city council approved the application for a province-owned BC Cannabis store at the Skeena Mall, next to Mark’s and Anytime Fitness.
