Retail investment was a hot-button topic on the Lorne Brooker Show Friday morning.
Marino Location President John Marino discussed the current climate for opening new shops, and what is hot.
He was quick to point out that Belleville can be a difficult location to open a store.
Cannabis locations was also a focus of the chat. Marino says opening just 25 stores will make things expensive and frustrating for the players in the business.
The stores were originally to open April 1 in 2019, and there was no limit on the number of stores. Marino says the level of knowledge at the municipal level is quite low.
