- [By ]
British Columbia and Alberta have chosen a different strategy where retail sales will be allowed through both public and private stores, similar to its current setup for liquor retail in the provinces. Retailers will have to get their supply of cannabis from the government’s wholesale distribution system, similar to how it works for alcohol now. The government will control online cannabis sales exclusively Our take: British Columbia also announced that physical retailing of cannabis and liquor will have to be separate, meaning stores cannot sell both products. This rule has an impact on existing liquor retailers aiming to convert some of their stores to sell cannabis. Aurora invested in Liquor Stores (renamed to Alcanna (OTCPK:LQSIF)) which has been struggling for years in the liquor business. Other pharmacy chains will also participate in the RFP as we have seen in Loblaw’s recent win in Newfoundland and Labrador. We think for many cannabis companies the path to winning those retail licenses will be a challenging one with the competition from multiple sources. The licenses will be hotly contested given that B.C. is the largest market to allow private retailing, leaving us cautious on those companies betting big on winning those contracts. The likely outcome is that a large number of companies will each win fewer contracts.
