The province of Manitoba has effectively rolled out their retail strategy and has ensured that the brands Canadians know and trust are easily accessible within each community. As we have seen, having physical retail locations has proven to be the most effective way to build brand loyalty by creating reliable educational hubs, supplied with high-quality, regulated products.
Tokyo Smoke, Canada’s award-winning and design-focused cannabis retailer is now present across two provinces, while Canopy’s second retail banner, Tweed, is located across four provinces. With 27 retail stores either owned or licensed, Canopy’s retail banners represent the 4th largest cannabis retail network in Canada.
The Tokyo Smoke store team looks forward to meeting its neighbours and creating a hub for adult recreational cannabis education and culture. The company is committed to building on its retail presence to drive brand awareness and continue to offer consumers convenient access to quality cannabis products, while combatting the black market through an effective retail structure.
Here’s to Future (retail) Growth.
