It is located within the Meadowlands Power Centre, a well-trafficked retail district anchored by a movie theatre and several national big-box retailers.
“I am very pleased that even more customers in Regina and Hamilton will be able to access our unique cannabis discount club experience for all of their cannabis products and consumption accessories needs. Ensuring value for our customers has always been our priority, and with our new concept, everyday low prices and an unmatched selection of high-quality consumption accessories and cannabis goods, I am positive that we are ideally-positioned to deliver even more value for customers in these markets,” said Raj Grover, President and Chief Executive Officer of High Tide. “Today’s announcement is also reflective of our ambitious strategy to further expand across Canada through both acquisitions, as in the case of the Regina store, and organic growth, as in the case of the Hamilton store. This is in line with our drive to rapidly grow market share by attracting value conscious and legacy market consumers, which combined, represent the vast majority of Canadian cannabis sales,” added Mr. Grover.
