Another week, another much-needed cannabis store opening in an underserved area of the city. Much to the joy of canna-hopefuls west of Bathurst, there’s now Shiny Bud.

A recipient of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario’s final Expression of Interest Application Lottery, the brand has opened its flagship store in the Smart Centre plaza at 2625 Weston Road in North York.

“Located just West of Toronto, in one of Ontario’s busiest retail strip malls, our team couldn’t be more thrilled to open our doors and start selling legal cannabis,” said Shiny Bud’s director, Richard Ledesma. “We wanted to create an inviting, easy, and memorable experience for anyone buying legal cannabis, and I think we achieved that goal.”

According to the release, the new store will house over 4,000 sq. ft. of floor space and offer the province’s major licensed brands, including Redecan, Tantalus Labs, 7ACRES, and more. 

Currently, GTA residents looking for pot west of Toronto’s Tokyo Smoke near Bathurst Street (570 Bloor Street West) need to head to Brampton’s Ganjika House to pick up at 186 Main Street.
