WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DELTA 9 CANNABIS INC. (TSX: DN) (OTCQX: VRNDF) ("Delta 9" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce it has expanded its click-and-collect and same-day home delivery service program to the Thompson and Brandon, Manitoba markets. As a result, Delta 9 becomes the only retail store chain offering the above services in Winnipeg, Brandon, and Thompson, Manitoba.
“As Canada deals with the second wave of COVID-19, contactless shopping options and access to cannabis products while enabling social distancing become an essential part of our business offering,” said John Arbuthnot, CEO of Delta 9. “As we have rolled out increased online services, we have noticed a major increase in the usage of our click-and-collect and same-day delivery programs with online sales up 265% over last year and with customer basket sizes much larger than in-store. If these consumer trends continue in a post-COVID world Delta 9 will be prepared as a market leader with innovative online services.”
The Company is pleased to provide the next phase of convenience for customers and further enhance safety during the COVID-19 pandemic by minimizing contact time between customers and staff. With the click of a mouse, customers can browse and sort through a complete inventory of cannabis products by store and reserve any products from whichever retail location that is most convenient.
Delta 9’s online platform features allow an order to be ready in two hours or less along with delivery services for all Manitobans. Customers will receive direct email and text order updates from their chosen store and can visit the Delta 9 website to seamlessly place an order. Customer service operators are available by phone or online chat.
“We custom architected and developed a made in Manitoba solution to meet the current demands of our customers. Building upon what Shopify provides out of the box today, we were able to create a seamless omnichannel experience for both online and in-store shopping.” said Matthew Sodomsky, CTO of Delta 9.
