CALGARY, Jan. 29, 2018 /CNW/ - Spirit Leaf Inc. ("Spirit Leaf" or the "Company"), a premium recreational cannabis retail chain establishing dispensaries across Canada's private distribution markets, today unveiled its concept retail store design that it developed in collaboration with industry leaders Tricarico and Seven Point Interiors.
"With more than 100 Spiritleaf locations already at various stages of planning, we wanted to ensure that each location will provide an incredible experience for our future customers, employees, communities, franchise partners, landlords, and other stakeholders," said Darren Bondar, CEO of Spirit Leaf Inc. "We searched for a top design firm that would not only immerse themselves in our brand message with enthusiasm, dedication, and passion, but also design with honesty, nurture innovation, cultivate creativity and strive to use sustainable materials that will inspire and resonate with our customers."
After careful consideration, Spiritleaf aligned itself with Tricarico and Seven Point Interiors, on which Bondar commented, "Tricarico is a phenomenal design studio that has worked with some of the world's top brands. Through their unique approach, they were able to collaborate with our talented creative team and understand the Company's desire to evoke emotion and bring customers together in an inviting, engaging atmosphere where people can gather, share unique experiences and ascertain knowledge about our own high-quality products and those of our brand partners."
"Upon reviewing the brand package and meeting with the team I immediately felt a strong connection and couldn't wait to tell the Spiritleaf story," said Jessica Archeval, design manager at Tricarico. "We wanted to create something completely unique so that when a customer walks inside, they immediately feel the positive energy, and are embraced by the natural feeling of the dispensary. Within the confines of the walls, a new community is established where all are welcomed. The crisp white walls help brighten the space and create an extension from the fresh outdoors. Distressed woods and metals were carefully selected to add unique character to the space. We wanted to allow the walls to tell the stories of the brand, so Spiritleaf's community members will always embrace their journey and never forget where they started!"
