A retail cannabis shop, restaurant and pain management clinic are some of the planned retail tenants for a 14,000-square-foot urban reserve on Portage Avenue, Peguis First Nation officials announced at a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday.
The $6.5-million retail component of the development is expected to be completed by December with tenants moving in next year.
"It is long overdue," Peguis Chief Glenn Hudson said of the deal that has been five years in the making. "This city and this country is based on developments and I think with First Nations it is no different."
Police are searching for a group of thieves who crashed a rental truck into an Edmonton store and made off with coins and Second World War memorabilia in a brazen robbery caught on camera.
