EDMONTON, Nov. 7, 2018 /CNW/ - Independent corporate cannabis retailer Fire & Flower has added two more, fully-stocked shops to its growing network of retail outlets in Canada, bringing to seven the number of shops it has opened since the recreational use of cannabis was legalized in Canada in October. The two shops – located in Hinton and Sherwood Park, Alberta – join those already open in Edmonton, Fort Saskatchewan and St. Albert, as well as Fire & Flower's two shops in Yorkton and North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
"These shops are part of our plan to become the leading corporate cannabis retailer in Canada, with shops in all provinces that allow private cannabis sales," said Mike Vioncek, Chief Operating Officer, Fire & Flower. "The response to the shops we have already opened has been terrific, and we can hardly wait to bring our exceptional customer service to even more people across the country in the weeks and months ahead."
Fire & Flower shops supply expertly curated Health Canada-regulated products through an education-based, socially responsible retailing experience and are staffed by highly-trained cannistas who help guests understand the products available and provide advice to ensure guests have an enjoyable and safe experience once they get home. The company's robust security protocol also ensures the highest standards of safety for the communities in which its shops operate, including a two-step age verification process to prohibit purchases by minors, extensive community engagement and programs to promote responsible use.
You can find the newest Fire & Flower shops in Alberta at these locations:
- 263 Gregg Ave, Hinton, Alberta
- #380 220 Lakeland Drive, Sherwood Park, Alberta
The shops are open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 10pm and 11am to 7pm on Sunday and statutory holidays. For more information about Fire & Flower, visit our website at fireandflower.com.
