Dear Friends & Valued Buddha Barn Members
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your positive thoughts and comments with the
announcement of our temporary closure that started September 1, 2019.
As I mentioned before, this has been a challenging time with a lot of mixed emotions over the transition to legalization.
Your ongoing support means the world to me. Thank you on behalf of our whole team.
In previous messages, I promised to keep you posted on our provincial licensing process,
the timing of our re-opening date and plans to include you in the process of selecting government approved cannabis products for the new Buddha Barn store on West 4th Street.
Provincial Licensing Process
Good news…We passed our provincial license and have been issued a retail license from the BC government’s liquor and cannabis regulation branch. Thanks to our Buddha Barn team, provincial officials and city of Vancouver staff for their patience throughout the application process over the past few months. This is an historic moment for us and we are thankful for your trust.
With our BC retail licence in hand, we just have to finalize a few details with the City of Vancouver, complete security clearances for our staff and start ordering products. I expect to confirm a re-opening date very soon but I expect it will be by the end of the month, as expected.
We are looking forward to serving you again real soon; have a blessed week and we will keep you posted.
Thanks again for your support over the years and we look forward to keeping you posted on this transition process over the coming days and weeks.
Have a fabulous day,
