TORONTO, Sept. 23, 2020 /CNW/ – Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (TSX: FAF) (OTCQX: FFLWF) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Fire & Flower Inc. (collectively, “Fire & Flower” or the “Company”) today announced the opening of its Toronto-Parkdale cannabis retail store.
The Company has received its Retail Store Authorization from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and has completed all regulatory requirements in connection with opening the store.
The Toronto-Parkdale location will open on September 27, 2020 and is located at 4 Brock Avenue, Toronto, Ontario. Fire & Flower will host a grand opening on October 2, 2020.
Our Toronto-Parkdale location is the second Fire & Flower to open in the major urban market of Toronto and the fourth Fire & Flower to open in the Province of Ontario. As part of our Ontario plan, we completed construction at this location well in advance in preparation for licensing.
Trevor Fencott, Chief Executive Officer of Fire & Flower
The opening of this store demonstrates our organic growth capabilities in Ontario and we look forward to the ability to open additional already built-out locations as we anticipate the Province’s licensing program picking up speed. We believe that increased licensing of additional retail stores across the province of Ontario is critical to servicing customers that want convenient access to legal, regulated cannabis.
