FREDERICTON – The provincial government has announced the remaining nine locations of the CannabisNB stores.
The nine locations were awarded through a competitive tendering process. Of the nine, seven are at new developments for which a civic address has yet to be determined.
“We are pleased to have been able to secure these locations to ensure that New Brunswick has the proper number of cannabis retail locations,” said Brian Harriman, president and CEO of NB Liquor, in a release. “It is anticipated these CannabisNB locations will be open by September 2018.”
Fredericton: Cordova Realty Ltd., Woodside Lane.
Rothesay: Choice Properties Ltd. Partnership., Marr Road.
Edmundston: Choice Properties Ltd. Partnership., Victoria Road.
Sackville: Castlemount Properties Inc., Wright Street.
Shediac: Choice Properties Ltd. Partnership., Main Street.

The locations were chosen based on population demographics, liquor sales transactions, and traffic patterns. The locations were also chosen to ensure distribution and accessibility provincewide and to ensure they were at an appropriate distance from schools and daycares.
In December, the government announced 11 retail locations that are anticipated to be open in July.
