      City Cannabis Co. wants to move its flagship store in Downtown Vancouver.

      The company is eyeing the site of a former 7-Eleven convenience store at the corner of 651 Robson Street and a lane, which is actually across from its current location.

      City Cannabis has applied with the City of Vancouver to move from 610 Robson Street, where the store opened in 2016 as Vancity Weed.

      In a letter to the city, the company related that it has “amassed a library of best business practices” after operating as a licensed medical dispensary for the last two years.

      “At City Cannabis we believe in providing a safe environment for both medical and recreational customers of cannabis to purchase,” the company wrote.

      City Cannabis received in early 2019 a license from the B.C. provincial government to sell recreational pot at a Fraser Street location.

       City hall will receive comments from the public on the proposed transfer until February 15.
