The pandemic may have induced a lockdown and provincial state of emergency, but life and business continue in Crown Point. There will be two new cannabis stores opening up in the neighbourhood. Each are on the east side with one conveniently close to Roxborough and the other closer to Barton.
True North Cannabis Co., near Barton, will open for curbside service on Tuesday, the 23rd of February. They are currently hiring. Relm, which has been teasing us since the pandemic began have no planned opening, according to their website.
If all that talk about cannabis is spurring the munchies, have no fear. Ottawa Street’s current crop of eateries is to be joined by two more. The Argyle, opening at Argyle and Ottawa St. N., will be serving up drinks and golf simulation. Is that called a swingers bar?
Further south where Wick’d Wax sold candles, opening up is a sandwich shop named Dagwood’s. They’ve promised a Facebook page, but I can’t find one.
If you’re worried about where you’re going to get your candles, don’t. Wick’d Wax have crossed the street and went a bit further south to 156.
Quality Bakery closed and Where Heads Meet moved into that space. Where they were, just steps from Revolution Records, Crown Point Market is selling gourmet and speciality foods including soups from the Bread Bar.
Meanwhile, Murray’s Farm & Butcher Shoppe, has opened a green grocer on the same corner selling fresh vegetables, fruits, and a variety of prepared foods.
