Hifyre Achieves Milestone of 100,000 Members in the Spark Perks Program
HAMILTON, ON, May 11, 2020 /CNW/ – Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. ( “FFHC”, “Fire & Flower” or the “Company”) (TSX: FAF OTCQX: FFLWF), and its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary Hifyre™ Inc. (“Hifyre”), today announced that the Spark Perks™ member program has achieved the milestone of 100,000 enrolled members across the Fire & Flower retail network.
Spark Perks offers its members access to services including Spark Fastlane™ “click-and-collect”, curbside pickup and the Rapid Delivery™ home delivery service in jurisdictions where these programs are permitted. In addition, member benefits include exclusive discounts, member-only content and access to invite-only events.
On average, Spark Perks members spend 37% more per transaction than non-members and have purchased from Fire & Flower an average of 2.5 times in the past seven weeks. More than 50% of all Fire & Flower transactions are from Spark Perks members.
Sparks Perks continues to be a competitive advantage for Fire & Flower and since the onset of the COVID-19 public health crisis beginning in March 2020, more than 20,000 members have enrolled in the program.
The Hifyre platform continues to be a competitive advantage for Fire & Flower in cannabis retailing. Engaged customers, repeat purchasing and higher than average transaction values are key in building our Retail Platform revenue stream.
