TORONTO, Aug. 7, 2018 /CNW/ - Beleave Inc. (CSE: BE) (OTCQX: BLEVF) ("Beleave" or the "Company") is excited to announce the opening of two new Medi-Green stores which will be located in London, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec.
Medi-Green is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Beleave Inc. and was acquired by the company earlier this year. The two stores mark the first new locations since the acquisition.
"First, we're thrilled to be opening our new location in Montreal, which will be our first store in Quebec, as we feel there is tremendous opportunity in that market," said Beleave CEO, Andrew Wnek. "Also, with the addition of our new London location, we're coming through on our commitment to provide the residents of Ontario with quality and accessible medicinal cannabis in a safe and trusted environment. We have aggressive plans for expanding the Medi-Green brand and these two new stores are just the beginning."
The Montreal location will be the first to open in mid-September. At 1530 sq. ft. it will be located at 4123 St. Denis street in the heart of the popular Plateau Mont-Royal district. Long-recognized as a hub for art, food, and culture, the shops on St. Denis are an integral part of the community, close to the subway, and are a destination for tourists and locals alike. Employee training and onboarding for that location is already underway.
In late-September, Medi-Green will be opening the London store. With approximately 1500 sq. ft. of space, it will be located at 211 Dundas Street. Employee training and onboarding will begin on September 3rd.
"With the new stores, Medi-Green's superior customer service and respected expertise will be available to even more Canadians," said Beleave CFO, Bojan Krasic. "As the distribution and point of sale landscape evolves, we will continue to invest in additional locations, employee training, and community outreach to be advantageously positioned for new opportunities as they arise."
