Delta 9 Receives Conditional Approval for Cannabis Store in Brandon, Manitoba

PR Newswire

WINNIPEG, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - DELTA 9 CANNABIS INC. (TSXV: NINE) (OTC: VRNDF) ("Delta 9" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has received conditional approval from the Manitoba Government to open a new cannabis 'SuperStore' in Brandon, Manitoba. The store opening is subject to execution of a Retail Store Agreement with the province, as well as final licenses and inspections from the Liquor Gaming and Cannabis Authority.

Design of the new cannabis retail outlet in Brandon will be similar to the Delta 9 Cannabis 'Super Store' in the St. Vital area of Winnipeg, Manitoba. (CNW Group/Delta 9 Cannabis Inc.)

At 4,800 square feet in size, the cannabis outlet will be the largest in Manitoba and will include an onsite Cannabis Education Centre offering courses on cannabis use and safety for the general public.

"There are many people who may be completely new to cannabis or may not have tried it for years or even decades," explained Delta 9 CEO John Arbuthnot. "Part of our mission as a Company is to make sure that our customers have the best information possible for an enjoyable experience."

The Education Centre will be offering courses including the basics of using cannabis safely, called 'Cannabis 101', a course on the use of cannabis oils, a course on the use of various cannabis accessories, and how to use ancillary items to produce cannabis butter for edible products.

The Delta 9 outlet in Brandon is located in a former liquor store in Shoppers Mall, the busiest retail area in the city. Shoppers Mall is a 367,000-square-foot enclosed regional shopping centre located in the heart of Brandon's shopping district.  The Mall features more than 90 retailers offering a merchandise mix of retail, services, entertainment and restaurants, and includes major anchor tenants such as Sobeys extra, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sport Chek and Landmark Cinemas.

"Our retail strategy has been to build in the best available properties we can find, with the highest amount of foot and vehicular traffic," explained VP of Retail Operations Al Roney. "This strategy has worked very well at our St. Vital outlet in Winnipeg and where we have completed over 36,000 transactions to date.

"We fully expect to see the same kind of success in Brandon, and we're very excited to start working on renovating the property over the next few weeks."

Brandon residents will start to see Delta 9 Cannabis signs going up over the coming week, as contractors move in to begin construction. Roney says the store will be very similar to the sleek, elegant design of the Winnipeg outlet, which some media outlets described as "like an Apple Store, but with cannabis."

The Company is awaiting final approval from the provincial government on two more stores, with one located in Winnipeg and the other in Thompson.
