DELTA 9 TO OPEN TENTH CANNABIS RETAIL STORE
Delta 9 Cannabis Inc. will hold the grand opening of its 10th Delta 9 Cannabis retail store and seventh cannabis store in the province of Manitoba today. Delta 9's newest retail store is located in the city of Winnipeg and is scheduled to open on Feb. 5, 2021.
"We're pleased to bring Delta 9 and our many brand partners to the residents of Portage Avenue West and surrounding areas with a brand-new retail express store concept that is the first of its kind in Winnipeg," said John Arbuthnot, chief executive officer of Delta 9. "The Winnipeg cannabis market has been a special place for us ever since we opened our first store in October, 2018, and we will continue to invest and grow here. Our retail strategy is to offer the best selection of cannabis products at the lowest prices from the most popular cannabis manufacturers in Canada."
Delta 9 now has seven stores open servicing Manitobans and 10 in total across Canada. The company plans to have up to 20 Delta 9 Cannabis retail stores open this year and has a long-term vision of opening many more Delta 9 branded retail stores across Canada.
Delta 9's welcoming retail cannabis concept, combined with a focus on convenient and high-traffic shopping destinations, has been a successful part of the company's overall vertical integration strategy. The newest Delta 9 Cannabis Store is situated on Portage Avenue which is also known as part of the Trans Canada Highway No. 1. This section of Portage Avenue is the focal point for over one million square feet of retail businesses, making it one of the city's larger shopping destinations.
Within a two-kilometre radius the area tenants include: Walmart Super Centre, Canadian Tire, Princess Auto, Winners, Staples, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sobeys. This section of Portage Avenue traffic corridor is in Winnipeg West, sees over 75,000 vehicles every day and is the busiest shopping district in the vicinity.
The new store is located at 3317 Portage Ave. and is part of the Kirkfield Motor Inn facilities. The location offers plenty of free parking spaces and easy access from the street. The Delta 9 store is the first controlled access store in Winnipeg offering an express style of service. The new store offers customers a modern shopping decor, highly trained staff and a wide range of products, including dried cannabis flower, cannabis oil, edibles, drinkables, vape pens and concentrates.
"This controlled access opportunity is a result of our partnership with the Manitoba Hotel Association (MHA) that includes the majority of hotels in Manitoba and has one of the highest membership rates among hotel associations in North America," said Mr. Arbuthnot. "We look forward to working with other MHA members to help them become established cannabis retailers and to distribute locally produced Delta 9 branded cannabis products throughout Manitoba hotels."
