Cannabis store offers sneak preview

With Town of Creston bylaws and approvals now in place, the opening of local cannabis retail shops could be only weeks away.

But the Karountzos family is eager to show off its Creston Valley Cannabis Company facility to the community, and has scheduled a “4/20 Open House” for 3-5 pm on Saturday, April 20th.

“We are very proud of our shop, and we have been getting so many inquiries, so we want to give Creston Valley a sneak peak about what to expect when we open,” Kris Karountzos said on Monday. “We have been told our application is 99.9 per cent complete, so it shouldn’t be long before we can actually open for business.”

Located at 137 – 15th Avenue North in the former Puffin (insert chuckles here!) Design building, the interior has undergone a complete renovation, and Karountzos is confident that visitors will be impressed.

For the brief opening on Saturday, beverages and snacks will be provided, and staff will be on hand to answer questions.

“There will be no cannabis on the premises,” Karountzos emphasized. “But we are excited to take this next step in opening our doors.”
