History-making cannabis retailer brings the buzz to East Hamilton
East Hamilton is about to become home to another new retail cannabis store.
The Hunny Pot Cannabis Co. which will be located at 40 Centennial Pkwy, right across from Eastgate Square, will be open for business on Saturday (June 13) but only online until their Grand Opening weekend next week.
“Hamilton has always been a market we hoped to expand to as our executive team has deep roots in this city,” said Cameron Brown, Spokesperson for The Hunny Pot Cannabis Co.
“We are thrilled about the location that we have secured. Eastgate Square is home to a number of great stores and restaurants, and we believe that our customers will appreciate the accessibility of The Hunny Pot nearby.”
To celebrate their grand opening in Hamilton, The Hunny Pot will be offering $0 delivery for those in the Greater Hamilton area, starting Saturday. The storefront will start allowing customers in for its grand opening weekend on Thursday, June 18 to Sunday, June 21.
This Saturday, though, customers are encouraged to visit The Hunny Pot website to browse products and select same-day delivery for the Hamilton area.
Should customers have questions about products, online budtenders will be available through the website, during regular operating hours.
The Hunny pot has several retail locations in the GTA, one in Burlington and a couple in Toronto, according to a press release the company issued Friday (June 12). Their first store opened in Toronto on April 1, 2019 and was the first legal cannabis retailer in the city at the time.
By the end of the summer, The Hunny Pot expects to operate six legal cannabis retail stores located in Toronto, Burlington and Hamilton. The Hamilton location will operate Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm and Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm, which will be extended shortly.
“The Hunny Pot has been so fortunate to greet close to half a million customers through our doors since opening the first store," said Hunny Gawri, Hunny Pot's owner.
"We pride ourselves on excellent customer service, elevated and modern store interiors and carrying the most sought-after brands and accessories. Our goal is to bring these same trademarks to the Hamilton location.”
The new Centennial location features 1700 square feet of retail space and will offer a range of cannabis products including dried flower, pre-rolls, oils, capsules, edibles and beverages along with a variety of cannabis accessories.
Similar to their Toronto and Burlington model, the Hamilton store will allow for customers to browse products on the store floor utilizing sensory jars to sample terpene scents of each product.
