Dutch Love wants to open a store in Lake Country

Published on October 2, 2020 by David Wylie

Dutch Love has set up its store already in Lake Country, but with outdated branding.

Lake Country council will consider an application for a second legal cannabis retail store later this month.

An application from Dutch Love Cannabis under the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch to open a store on Main Street in the small community will come to council on Oct. 20.

The district is asking residents and businesses who feel they’re affected to submit feedback.

Dutch Love, formerly known as Hobo, was the first company to open a store in Kelowna.

There are two stores currently open in Lake Country—a licensed shop, Lake Country Cannabis, and an illicit shop, All Nations Cannabis.

This possible third contender, Dutch Love Cannabis, is a Donnelly Group venture with more than a dozen privately-owned retail cannabis stores locations spread out across BC, Ontario, and Alberta.

The Donnelly Group is behind some of the most popular restaurants, bars, and pubs around Vancouver.
