We love with Strathcona Park, Love thy neighbour…hood:
Although we offer cannabis in Strathcona, curious as to why we chose the Strathcona Park community to set-up shop for Mountain View Cannabis? The answer is simple. Strathcona is a community in Calgary’s south west quadrant overlooking downtown of Calgary with excellent views. Strathcona is accessible and close to so many amenities.
We experienced the area first-hand and fell in love with the sense of community. Everyone we met – from small business owners to large retail employees and residents was so warm and welcoming to us. Wich made us realize how much it would mean for Mountain View Cannabis to be a part of that.
We are totally stoked to be part of such an awesome community and think this is a great time to highlight some of the great amenities and businesses in the Strathcona Park area. Because even though some places have been forced to temporarily close due to COVID-19, we think each business, park, and resident is essential to the Strathcona community.
So what can you expect to find when you visit the area? Here’s the 411:
- If you need to pick up some stuff:
The community boasts a number of different shopping locations including Strathcona Centre and Strathcona Square Shopping Centre, which makes it easy for you to check off your shopping list without leaving the community. You’ll find the Jedidiah African Food Mart and Total Wine and Liquor located in the same retail building as us, or you can venture a little further into the community where you’ll discover a Sobeys, Sobeys Liquor, Rexall Drugstore, and a Splurge Flower and Gifts.
- If you need to relax:
Although we may be a little bit biased, we’d say Mountain View Cannabis should be your first stop if you need something to help with relaxation. Our budtenders would be more than happy to introduce you to a wide assortment of Cannabis products, including flowers, edibles and topical options that will help you achieve the ultimate in relaxation. But with that said, we’re also located right next to the West Side Yoga Studio who can help you relax your body, mind, and soul with one of their killer classes. To top it off, Strathcona Chiropractic & Massage Therapy is known for its unique, holistic approach to rehabilitation and massage practices. You can find them operating out of the Strathcona Square Shopping Centre.
- If you’re in need of professional services:
You’ll find everything from beauty services to cleaning services. In our building alone, you’ll discover Frenzy Salon and The Greener Cleaners. If you’re looking to beautify yourself then you’ll love the team of professionals at Frenzy Salon who can do everything from a haircut to a full colour, manicures, and pedicures and even offer waxing services. And if your home is the one in need of beautifying then try out the Greener Cleaners. The family operated business offers efficient, unparalleled service, has a line of their very own cleaning products (they’ll also use commercial cleaning products on request) and a 100% satisfaction guarantee!
- If you’re looking for a coffee spot or a place to eat:
Truth be told, we’re a bit limited in this department. There’s a Bento Sushi (located inside Sobeys) or you can swing by Good Earth Café for a latte; both nestled in Strathcona Square Shopping Centre. The good news is that if neither of those satisfies your craving, we’re just a hop, skip and jump away from Aspen Landing where you’ll find even more dining and coffee options.
- If you feel like spending some time in the great outdoors:
Get some fresh air with a stroll through Strathcona Park, which is open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. In addition to the sprawling green space, trees, and ravines, you’ll be able to enjoy some breathtaking views of the city’s core; which is just a 10-minute drive away. There’s even an off-leash dog area where you can take your four-legged friend when they need to expel some energy.
Between the amenities, familiar faces and location, who could blame us for choosing such a great area of the city?! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the area, we highly recommend doing so when you get the chance. We’re almost certain you’re going to love the area as much as we do!
Please note that we’ve been deemed as an essential service in Alberta, so Mountain View Cannabis remains open during the COVID-19 pandemic, however, some of the other businesses we mentioned may be temporarily closed. For the time being, we encourage everyone with the ability to do so, to stay home to do so in an effort to limit the spread the virus. Our website offers, pre-order and pick up in store for your convenience but also feel free to call us, we’d be happy to assist in any way possible.
