The Canadian province of Nova Scotia will soon become the only known place in the world with combined liquor-cannabis retailers. The twelve stores are set to open on October 17, the official launch date for Canada’s recreational market.
The retail combination will run through the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC), the province’s government-subsidized alcohol retailer. The NSLC will also be selling cannabis separately through an online e-commerce platform.
The President and CEO of the NSLC Bret Mitchell recently confirmed the news in a press release and guided tour for news outlets. Customers looking to buy cannabis from the NSLC will need to walk through the store’s alcohol retail section to access its cannabis section.
