Everybody knows what the SAQ is (société des alcools du Québec), and soon everybody will also know what the SQDC is - société québécoise du cannabis.
This fall 20 locations of the SQDC will be opening across Quebec, and they are currently looking to hire cannabis advisors or sales associates for the new locations.
Similar to how an SAQ employee can recommend which type of red will pair nicely with your evening roast lamb, the SQDC advisor will be able to help you select the exact marijuana you need, for example, are you looking for a more relaxing high, or a more creative one? The experts at the SQDC will be able to help guide your purchases.
The cannabis advisors will need to have some training, experience, and passion for the product as up to 150 types of product will be available on location.
The SQDC would like to be present across Quebec and so far is set to open up locations in the following areas: Montreal, Drummondville, Trois-Riviere, Quebec, and Levis.
It's to be noted that marijuana will not be sold in bulk at the SQDC locations. And will be pre-packed behind the counter. You will be able to see the product before buying. Although, it's unclear at this point if buyers will be able to sample the product before purchasing.
