Northbound Cannabis Co. is now open on Regent Street in 1984
Greater Sudbury’s newest cannabis retailer, Northbound Cannabis Co., opened its doors on April 3rd.
Located on Cedar Pointe Plaza on Regent Street, the store offers groceries, cannabis beverages, cutting edge solutions, and other traditional cannabis products.
There is also an advisory suite where clients can speak to an expert in a private lounge area. The shop also offers a wide range of price points, from “value-conscious brands to higher-end products”.
Phil Bouffard, one of the five owners of Northbound Cannabis Co., said that all of the products in the store were hand selected to simplify the shopping experience.
“We try to improve the shopping experience for our customers by putting together the best products in each category so our customers don’t get lost,” said Bouffard.
There are now five cannabis retail stores in Greater Sudbury and more than a dozen other locations that are “under construction” according to the Ontario Alcohol and Gambling Commission.
To stand out from the rest of the shops in town, the owners of Northbound Cannabis wanted to offer their customers a more comfortable, boutique-like atmosphere.
“We wanted our lounge, mood lighting, and music to make it feel like a coffee shop so that you could feel relaxed while you were with us,” said Bouffard.
But it’s not just about looks. Bouffard said her goal is to educate consumers about the different types of cannabis use as well as the variety of products.
“We are rooted in the idea of telling a little more of a brand story when we think about our products.
“Instead of just talking about the THC content, there is a lot more going into making these products and what makes them great. We believe that educating our consumers and highlighting these brands about their processes and backgrounds will enable our customers to make the right decisions about using cannabis. “
Northbound Cannabis Co. is located at 113-1984 Regent Street.
The shop is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and has the appropriate COVID-19 logs. Customers can also order online for in-store collection or roadside collection.
