VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NetworkWire – Wildflower Brands Inc. (CSE: SUN, OTC: WLDFF)
(the “Company”) is excited to announce that BC’s Liquor and Cannabis
Regulation Branch has issued a Cannabis Retail Store license to City
Cannabis Co’s 2317 Cambie Street location and their Comox Valley
location on Vancouver Island. Wildflower recently acquired City Cannabis
Co and with their third and fourth locations in B.C. City Cannabis is
at the forefront of the BC retail cannabis market.
The Cambie Street location’s design is focused on an all-natural look and feel with a state of the art interactive experience. It is two blocks away from the intersection of Broadway and Cambie which is one of the busiest corners of the city. The location will be connected by two Skytrain rapid transit lines (Broadway-UBC coming soon) and is situated amongst high traffic big-box stores including Whole Foods, Save-On-Foods, Canadian Tire, Best Buy, Home Depot, London Drugs, Winners and one of the busier BC Liquor stores in Vancouver. The growth experienced within the retail trade area of Cambie Village has a measurable trajectory that is extremely favorable.
City Cannabis’s Comox location is located in the heart of Downtown Comox and will be the first licensed store to support the entire Comox Valley area that holds a population of 68,000 residents. In the summer this population grows significantly with Vancouver Island being named a top North American vacation destination. This sector is supported by businesses providing accommodation, food services, transportation, retail, arts and culture as well as recreation. This significant local and transient population represents a substantial trade opportunity in BC.
William MacLean, CEO of Wildflower Brands, says, “City Cannabis Co’s experience and history of operations for over five years in the most cultured cannabis market in the world has allowed them to accumulate priceless data that has been used to design this one of a kind store. This will provide consumers with a state of the art retail experience not seen anywhere else in the world.”
