Two stores will open doors for marijuana sales in Calgary.

Stores will open with hours similar to those of liquor stores.

CALGARY (660 NEWS) – There will be two cannabis stores opening in Calgary, on the first day of legalization.

At 10 a.m., 420 Premium Market and Nova Cannabis at Willow Park, both along Macleod Trail, will welcome in the city’s first legal cannabis customers.

Shelley Girard is with Alcanna, the company that owns Nova Cannabis and says staff expect lots of people on the historic day.

“We are expecting some excitement–some energy–some buzz, so to speak–with customers and consumers and we’re ready. We’re ready for there to be some crowds and some lineups,” Girard said.

Girard added, owners believe they have enough product to meet the demand, including dried cannabis, oils, capsules and paraphernalia.
