Westleaf Opens Prairie Records Retail Cannabis Store and Adds Option for Fourth Saskatchewan Location

 

Westleaf Inc. (TSX-V: WL) (“Westleaf”), is pleased to announce the opening of a Prairie Records cannabis retail operation in Warman, Saskatchewan and that the company has secured an option agreement (the “Option”) to acquire an additional cannabis retail store location in Swift Current. The Option is conditional on provincial regulatory approval of the permit application and the transactions contemplated by the Option. The Swift Current location is expected to be operated under the Prairie Records brand.

Prairie Records is a unique retail experience that celebrates the instinctual relationship of music and cannabis and surrounds the customer with the aesthetic of shopping in a vintage vinyl shop. The Prairie Records store is now open, centrally located in the town of Warman, just north of Saskatoon. The 3,200-square-foot location includes a retail storefront and warehouse space for an e-commerce fulfillment centre to serve the entire Saskatchewan market.

Highlights

  • Launch of the one-of-a-kind cannabis retail experience Prairie Records, and one of ~50 stores planned across Western Canada by the end of 2020;
  • The Warman location will serve as the online fulfillment centre for direct to consumer sales across the entire province of Saskatchewan;
  • Westleaf now has the option to purchase three additional retail stores in Saskatchewan, two in Saskatoon, and one in Swift Current. All options are conditional on provincial regulatory approval.

“Prairie Records is going to stand out from our competitors as something distinct and will provide the customer with a unique and engaging cannabis retail experience,” said Adam Coates, Chief Commercial Officer with Westleaf. “From the moment you walk through the door the customer will be greeted by a differentiated and inviting approach to cannabis retail.” Coates noted that shopping at a Prairie Records store will invoke the feeling of a retro-record shop, complete with music paraphernalia, curated play lists, and product information being presented on album covers.

“The opening of this Prairie Records location in Saskatchewan represents a significant milestone for Westleaf” said Scott Hurd, President and CEO of Westleaf. “As a vertically integrated cannabis company we are steadfast in our commitment to execute on our plans to have assets across the cannabis value chain. Combined with the cultivation facility under construction near Battleford, Saskatchewan and the extraction, R&D and production centre under construction in Calgary, Alberta, our strategy is rolling out as planned.” Hurd added.

The Warman location is the first Prairie Records store in Saskatchewan and will be followed by two locations in Saskatoon and one location in Swift Current, subject to Westleaf exercising its option to purchase agreements. Customers can expect superior customer service at Prairie Records, staff have undergone extensive training to ensure they can meet the diverse needs of every consumer who walks through the door while providing a safe, inclusive environment rooted in cannabis education. Prairie Records’ Warman location is located at 100 2nd Ave North and is open Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. For more information on Prairie Records, visit prairierecords.ca.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
