Westleaf opens first Alberta store

2019-09-11 07:51 ET - News Release

Mr. Bruce Leslie reports


Westleaf Inc. has opened its first Alberta retail location. Calgary residents who are 18-plus now have the chance to experience a new spin on cannabis retail through an immersive and inclusive in-store environment with the grand opening of Prairie Records' first Calgary location on Saturday, Sept. 14. The new Prairie Records store is located on one of the city's busiest streets and in one of its most recognizable cultural hubs, International Avenue (17th Ave. SE).

"This is an important next step for Westleaf as we expand in the Prairie provinces and continue to build out our retail footprint in Western Canada," explains Adam Coates, chief commercial officer at Westleaf. "It also gives us an opportunity to introduce the unique Prairie Records brand to Alberta cannabis consumers, the country's most advanced retail market. We believe based on our experience in Saskatchewan that our brand is going to be a winner and differentiate our retail experience from all others."

In honour of the store's official grand opening, Prairie Records is hosting musically infused activities with a special performance by local musician DJ Sonidef and offering exclusive in-store specials and promotions from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Calgarians will have the opportunity to explore the new Prairie Records store which seeks to educate both first-time users and cannabis connoisseurs by sparking discovery and encouraging exploration in its welcoming and approachable musically themed atmosphere.
