ONTARIO — Burnt River Farms LLC joined Ontario’s retail marijuana scene last Thursday, Aug. 8. According to Community Development Director Dan Cummings, the store opted for a non-publicized soft opening for a slow and steady start.

Now, after a week of sales, Burnt River Farms is having its grand opening at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 15.

“Sales have been really good — very steady,” said Shawn McKay, co-owner of Burnt River Farms. McKay is hoping the ribbon cutting on Thursday will welcome new customers to the store, located at 1055 N.W. Washington Ave. by Love’s Travel Center.

Burnt River Farms was one of the few dispensaries that opted to build from the ground up. McKay said the building was constructed with both customer experience and security . . .
