When James found himself unemployed during the 2009 recession, he began repairing an old computer and rediscovered a business plan for a long time dream of his – Where Heads Meet. He decided to pull the trigger and opened his original location at 162 Ottawa St. N.
Growing up in the community, James enjoys the area and finds that Ottawa St. N has a small town feel to the street given that it is in the middle of the city. He enjoys the laid-back and happy customers that come exploring his store.
Where Heads Meet offers a very diverse selection of products including vaporizers, bongs, marijuana paraphernalia, incense, rolling paper, rock’n’roll merchandise, African artwork, Egyptian artifacts, collectibles as well as a 35,000 vintage vinyl record collection (staff picks are on display on the main floor).
Since the stores opening, Where Heads Meet has been voted Hamilton’s Best Head Shop in View Magazine. Be sure to catch their bi-monthly sales, weekly giveaway on Facebook and their annual 420 sale in April!
