DELTA 9 PARTNER OCEANIC RELEAF OPENS CANNABIS STORE IN BURIN BAY ARM, NEWFOUNDLAND
Delta 9 Cannabis Inc. partner Oceanic Releaf Inc. has held a grand opening of Oceanic's first cannabis store in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The retail store is located in Burin Bay Arm and opened on Dec. 15, 2020. Delta 9 owns a 5-per-cent equity stake in Oceanic.
"With this newest store opening, we're extremely excited to be able to offer the residents of the Burin Peninsula the best selection of Delta 9 cannabis products and to work with Oceanic to create a world-class retail experience," said John Arbuthnot, chief executive officer of Delta 9. "We look forward to continuing to work with Oceanic on expanding their cultivation and retail operations in Newfoundland."
The new store will be the largest cannabis retail store in the area, offering a drive-thru option for customers that want to remain in their cars when they make a purchase. This will be the first drive-thru cannabis store in the area.
"This is a major milestone for Oceanic and an exciting day for the residents of the Burin Peninsula. Not only are we opening a socially responsible and beautiful store, we are also making waves with the first drive-thru cannabis retail store," said Taylor Giovannini, founder and president of Oceanic. "We are so excited to continue normalizing the cannabis industry and creating a genuine experience for all consumers. Offering coffee and multiple ways to purchase will elevate Oceanic's reach and brand. The drive-thru is also key in this ongoing pandemic we are all facing, and we are happy to adapt with the changing times."
