Cannabis store buds in Prince Rupert

Clarity Cannabis opened on Saturday, making it the first cannabis store in the city

Prince Rupert’s first ever cannabis store officially opened its doors at 10 a.m. on Nov. 16, offering the city an all new way to explore and purchase the popular product.

Around a dozen people stood out in the rain and wind on the dreary Saturday morning as they waited to enter the old Carters Jewellers location. The Third Ave. space had been empty for more than two years, but that is the case no longer as customers entered to a brightly lit space humming with business.

“It’s very important, it’s a safe place for people to buy cannabis,” Danielle Parnell, store manager, said of the importance of the new shop.
