The Vancouver company known in the cannabis business as Village Bloomery is looking at East Vancouver for a new location. The firm Village Collaborative Inc. has filed a development application with city hall for a store at 3450 East Hastings Street.

Founded by designer Andrea Dobbs and engineer Jeremy Jacob, the Village Bloomery currently operates at 1540 West 2nd Avenue, near Granville Island.

The cannabis retailer submitted an operational letter as part of its development application with the city.

In the letter, the Village Bloomery describes itself as a “legacy” retailer.

According to the company, it has been around since 2015, and opened its fully licensed operation near Granville Island in August 2019.

“Village became a pillar in the community, both as a resource for those seeking better health and wellness, and as an advocate for regulatory and social change in the sector,” the company declares.

A cannabis retailer previously occupied the Village Bloomery’s proposed East Hastings Street location.

The public has until April 30 to submit their comments to the city about the application.
