Inner Spirit Holdings Ltd. (Inner Spirit) recently open its 75th Spiritleaf store in St. Catharines, Ont.
With this continued growth, Spiritleaf operates the most cannabis stores under one single brand in Canada.
“We continue to build the Spiritleaf retail cannabis network with the opening of a new Ontario franchised store in Stratford earlier this month and [this] corporate store in St. Catharines now set … as our 75th location. Our franchise partners and employees across the country are providing superb product knowledge and expertise to customers as we serve our local communities,” said Inner Spirit president and CEO Darren Bondar. “The performance of Spiritleaf stores has remained strong even while operating in the midst of a challenging pandemic environment. We’re very pleased with the quality of franchise partners we are attracting and their ability to truly make the Spiritleaf brand come alive for our customers.”
The company’s store expansion program is expected to be active this month with additional franchised stores to open in Oshawa, Ont. and in Calgary, Alta., as well as a corporate store located right outside the Edmonton International Airport. Due to the ongoing pandemic, and with various restrictions in certain provinces, Spiritleaf stores are operating with enhanced customer service processes to ensure the safety of employees and customers. Spiritleaf’s Select & Collect service enables customers to pre-shop and order online prior to pick-up in store or curbside or via delivery where permitted.
Further, the company recently surpassed 205,000 members for its Collective customer benefits program.
