BC’s Liquour Distribution Branch has selected an online partner in preparation of the legalization of cannabis.
Shopify Inc will supply an e-commerce platform that will support the sales of non-medical marijuana in the province.
Shopify met all the requirements while offering the existing structure of a cloud-based service.
The LDB has also secured a 70 thousand square foot facility in Richmond that will act as a distribution warehouse.
The warehouse will employ roughly 130 people.
Non-medical cannabis will be legalized across Canada on October 17th.
