They closed their doors Saturday night, but the province has found a way legal cannabis stores can stay in business during the pandemic.

On Tuesday, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) said those stores can now offer delivery and curbside pick-up services. 

It is the result of a new order by the province to help fight against the illegal cannabis market. 

The AGCO says the order will last for 14 days, with the possibility of an extension if the government's Emergency Order on business closures is extended.

"This new measure helps address consumer demand and maintain a revenue stream for store operators while supporting the government’s broader objectives." said Jean Major, Registrar and CEO, AGCO.

Meta in Kitchener, as well as Bud and Sally in Waterloo will both be offering curbside pick-up.

Meantime, Tokyo Smoke in Cambridge does not say on its website on whether or not it will offer the service.
