Tokyo Smoke, the Toronto-born cafe and fashion-focused headshop turned national cannabis dispensary, announced today that they’re working with retail licence holders to open five new locations across Ontario.
Canopy Growth, which bought Tokyo Smoke’s parent company Hiku Brands from its founders Lorn and Alan Gertner, said in a press release on Thursday that it has entered into agreements with five Ontario retail license holders.
The businesses will be operated independently from each other with the “support of Canopy Growth’s existing retail team to ensure a consistent high level of customer experience and product curation.”
The five new retail locations are listed as:
- 390 Lakeshore Drive, Unit D, North Bay, ON
- 75 Pinebush Road, Cambridge, ON
- 570 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON
- 1303 Queen Street East, Toronto, ON
- 1082 Memorial Avenue, Thunder Bay, ON
“As a company we are pleased to see this progress in the Ontario retail market,” said Mark Zekulin, CEO, Canopy Growth. “Increasing our presence in Toronto and for the first time north of the GTA is an important step to building the Tokyo Smoke brand with an emphasis on consumer education and cannabis destigmatization.”
