Tokyo Smoke, the Toronto-born cafe and fashion-focused head shop turned national cannabis dispensary, opened the doors to its newest location in the city on Wednesday.
The 570 Bloor Street West location is one of five stores Tokyo Smoke announced in November it would be opening across Ontario, after reaching agreements with some of the province’s cannabis retail licence lottery winners. Another Toronto storefront is slated for 1303 Queen Street East. Once complete, the company will be able to boast three locations in the city, more than any other brand currently operating.
“As a company we are pleased to see this progress in the Ontario retail market,” said Mark Zekulin, CEO, Canopy Growth, in a previous release. “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.”
