COVID-19: Squamish's only licensed pot shop to stay open for now

Sky High Cannabis taking precautions, but remaining optimistic

As BC Liquor Stores remain open across the province, Squamish's Sky High Cannabis Ltd. Squamish's only licensed shop, will also continue to serve its clients for the time being.

"We'll stay open as long as we're allowed to, obviously, unless they force us to close. You never know, that could happen," general manager Linley Mussett told The Chief on March 18.

"We do advise people, don't panic. If they're feeling sick, don't come in," she said.

Mussett said business in the store has been pretty normal, although some people are stocking up on product.

For now, their regular shipments are still coming in.

On why it's important to stay open during the pandemic, Mussett said, "I know we are technically recreational, but there are so many people who use cannabis for a variety of reasons. It's kind of one of those things that people use every day for so many things.

"We'd like to stay open as long as we can so we can help people out that way."

Sky High is still accepting cash, but asks customers to use debit or credit as much as possible to limit contact. Their recycling program that accepts used wrapping or containers from their products is still operating. The shop has also upped its cleaning procedures.

Mussett said Sky High is staying optimistic about its 4/20 event planned for next month. It may be postponed, but it won't be cancelled, she said.
