Although late, Ameri, Toronto’s second legal cannabis store, has finally opened up in ritzy Yorkville neighborhood. However, even on the day of its opening (April 7), the store was half an hour late than intended to open for customers.
The opening of Ameri has come as a relief for many residents as they now have easy access to cannabis. Three more legal stores are yet to come up in Toronto; however, their exact launch dates haven’t yet been ascertained.
In an interview with a leading daily, Rob, the store manager at Ameri, said that their store stands a league apart when it comes to security and customer accessibility. For patients on wheelchair, the shop has not only installed ramps, but also placed shelves at a level that will allow patients to easily get underneath, thus making sample jars more reachable and accessible for them.
By installing the latest softwares on all its systems, Ameri has made sure that none of its customers’ information is shared with the U.S. authorities in any way.
Nevertheless, customers have mixed reviews for the retail store, especially in regard to the pricing of the products.
Kevin Nicol, a longtime marijuana smoker, finds the new store to be too expensive for its value. “Unfortunately, the business set up is set up for businesses to make money, but not for the customers to come in and get the products at an affordable price,” he was quoted as saying to GlobalNews.
Another customer looking to buy CBD oil was unhappy as Ameri isn’t selling any oil at the moment. The same customer also said that the store was ‘pretty small’ as compared to the first one by Hunny Pot Cannabis Co.
However, it’s just the second day of the store; judging it entirely on a 2-day performance is maybe rather harsh.
