Could This Interesting Idea Help Revitalize the Burlington Centre?


Have you been to the Burlington Centre recently? If so, you may have noticed that there have been some significant changes.

Just take a look at this image of what the Centre used to look like a few years ago.

Some of these changes, which were a result of the Centre’s recent $60-million renovation, included, painting, new signage, LED lighting in the parking lot, and more. 

A variety of new stores coming in were also a huge part of the Centre’s renovation.

However, to continue the Centre’s revitalization some people, according to this Reddit thread, have an interesting idea. 

A cannabis store.

The original post reads: “I think it would really help with its revitalization, and bring in a bunch of people and money. We still need a store downtown too (and others), but I it would as lucrative as an Apple store for mall purposes.”

For the most part, other users seemed to agree with this idea.

I think this is a great idea. Burlington Centre is looking so great with the new reno’s, adding a Cannabis outlet would only further their revamp,” one Reddit user commented. “I’m all for it!

Another comment reads, “I think it’s a cool idea! Remove that stigma!”

However, there were some users who that disagreed.

I wouldn’t want that, just because I’d rather not have to deal with the parking lot and wouldn’t want to deal with the malls hours,” another Reddit user said in the comments.

What do you think? Could a cannabis shop help Burlington Centre’s revitalization?
