Salt Spring Island's first licensed retail cannabis store 'Harvest Moon' opening soon

The seasoned retail team behind the new Harvest Moon is excited to announce that they are opening the Island’s first licensed retail cannabis store at 366 Lower Ganges Road.

Located at the south end of the Country Grocer shopping plaza, Harvest Moon has completed its modern and engaging renovations and is busily stocking the store for business with a wide range of available product offerings.

Salt Spring Islander and Store Manager, Mike Burd, says “Harvest Moon’s friendly and enthusiastic team will provide a welcoming, safe, and enjoyable cannabis and related-products shopping experience for all adults.” Mike is an experienced retail manager who was most recently the bulk foods manager for Country Grocer. He has been taking various cannabis training courses during the past two years, and his newly hired team members have all completed their “Selling it Right” training for cannabis.

Harvest Moon has common ownership with the Country Grocer, Country Grocer Pharmacy, and Upper Ganges Liquor stores group, which is a significant employer on Salt Spring Island.

Group spokesperson, Robert Steinbach, says, “We have many years of experience working with the LCRB [Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch] to safely sell beer, wine, and spirit products to consumers. Cannabis products are a natural extension to these offerings, and we take this entrusted responsibility seriously.”
