Paul Chu, Weekend Unlimited President and CEO, stated: "We have strategically targeted Oklahoma, the state has moved faster than any other state in embracing the industry, and we see the business-friendly market translating into a consumer-friendly environment where the best brands will succeed for the long term."
The 7-acre property includes two main buildings, with the larger 15,000 square foot facility housing nursery, cultivation and extraction activities, including a 1500 square foot retail designated space for a concept store to be developed as a first location in Oklahoma. The smaller 5,000 square foot building will be used for production and packaging of Weekend's Canna Candys brand, scheduled for mid-March, with distribution and sales in Oklahoma expected by April 1st.
On February 23rd, Northern Lights Supply celebrated its grand opening of its Nisku, Alberta location, near the Edmonton International Airport, less than 3 weeks after receiving one of 10 new licenses in Alberta. With 6,500 square feet of retail space, one of the largest approved retail cannabis stores in Alberta, it is designed to take advantage of the upcoming edible and infused cannabis products schedule to be legal in the fall of 2019.
Derek Shields, President of Northern Lights Supply, stated: "The initial customer response confirmed we hit a home run with not only our store design and selection but just as important, our team's commitment to cannabis education. With very little promotion our grand opening achieved sales of $27,000 (approximately 35% margin) and our customers provided terrific feedback, mainly that they appreciated an education focused experience in the store, something we see as our number one priority."
