The legalization of cannabis has helped to expand the Seed Company’s customer base as it moves into a new location.
JAG Hotel owner John Steele is purchasing the buildings on Buchanan Street for the expansion of his signature boutique hotel. That move has resulted in the relocation of The Seed Company by E.W. Gaze to the old Templeton’s building—the move will take place next month.
Owner Peter Byrne says while they can’t yet sell plants or seeds, cannabis-growing equipment has helped the business.
He says it’s expanded their customer base and the new location will provide the space for more stock and better displays.
The historic Templeton’s building will provide them with more parking, and allow them to carry out a greater number of workshops.
Byrne credits the city with helping to ensure the relocation process is as smooth and timely as possible.
