Cannabis stores warn of delivery delays, no same-day shipping and store closure
TORONTO -- Provincial cannabis distributors across the country are making changes to protect consumers and employees and help deal with a spike in demand amid COVID-19.
The Ontario Cannabis Store says it has suspended same-day and next-day deliveries because of a "higher-than-normal" volume of orders.
The OCS, the Quebec pot distributor Societe quebecoise du cannabis and B.C. Cannabis Stores also warn that Canada Post is no longer delivering parcels that require a signature or proof-of-age to customer doors.
Cannabis shoppers must now look for a notice card notifying them of a nearby post office where they can show identification at and collect their package.
Alberta Cannabis notified shoppers on its website that they may experience delivery delays with both Canada Post and Purolator.
PEI cannabis stores were due to be shut down at 2 p.m. local time for the foreseeable future to combat COVID-19.
