/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES./
EDMONTON, March 26, 2019 /CNW/ - Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. ("Fire & Flower" or the "Company") (TSXV: FAF), today announced successful first month operations of its cannabis Click & Collect service.
The Click & Collect service allows age-verified adult-use cannabis consumers to reserve cannabis and accessory products for pickup at stores across the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. The service was launched as part of the Company's mission to curate the world of cannabis for its customers who seek a more convenient and informative buying experience. Certain cannabis products sell out rapidly, and the Click & Collect service ensures customers are able to reserve high-demand products and receive priority service when visiting a store.
"The Click & Collect service has been adopted very favourably, particularly by our loyal customers using mobile devices," shared Trevor Fencott, Fire & Flower's Chief Executive Officer. "We are seeing rapid and continuous growth in use of our Click & Collect service across the entire Fire & Flower retail network."
The service was developed by HiFyre Inc., Fire & Flower's digital product studio that was acquired by the Company in July of 2018. HiFyre Inc. has significant cannabis e-commerce experience including work for Mettrum Health Corp., Starseed Medicinal Inc. and Canopy Growth Corporation.
