The provincial Liberal government has announced the addresses for 11 cannabis stores in eight communities. All 11 will be in high-traffic commercial centres when they open in July 2018.
In total, 20 sites will be open in 15 communities across the province next year. Tenders for the remaining nine sites will be re-issued and the government expects those stores to open in September, according to a news release from the Department of Finance.
"We are pleased to have been able to secure locations for 11 stores in eight communities," Brian Harriman, president and CEO of NB Liquor, said in the release.
"The remaining locations have been re-tendered for the nine areas, allowing for those who did not get a chance to submit the first time around to do so at this time."
The approved locations include:

Mapleton Holdings Inc. – 40 Wyse St.
Perfection Realty – 780 Dieppe Blvd.
Greater Saint John
The sites are in retail districts, next to grocery stores, malls and big box outlets."...
