Yoga studio, cannabis shop planned in Brock

Kamloops council gives nod to application in Brock Shopping Centre, in space formerly used by Kamloops Hot Yoga

City council has approved an application by Kamloops Hot Yoga co-owner Dwight Ergang for a cannabis store in the Brock Shopping Centre at 17-1800 Tranquille Rd., the location previously home to the hot yoga studio.

Kamloops Hot Yoga also has a location on Laval Crescent.

An assistant manager told KTW the Brock studio shuttered in July and the plan is to subdivide the space and pave the way for a cannabis store and yoga studio following renovations.

Last week, council voted 8-0 in favour of approving the retail cannabis store application.

Coun. Denis Walsh declared a conflict of interest.

The application now requires approval from the province.

At this time, no cannabis stores have opened in Brocklehurst.

The closest cannabis shop approved by council is the government BC Cannabis Store in Northills Shopping Centre, 726 Sydney Ave.

To date, council has approved 20 cannabis stores, with only four open — two government stores and two private shops.

The remaining applicants are awaiting final provincial approval.
