Inner Spirit Holdings Celebrates Opening of First Spiritleaf Locations in Alberta

Inner Spirit Holdings Ltd. is establishing a chain of recreational cannabis dispensaries under its Spiritleaf brand. The Company recently opened its first two Spiritleaf franchise stores in Brooks and St. Albert, Alberta and has additional franchise store openings in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on November 17 and Lethbridge, Alberta on November 19.

“We have exciting and aggressive plans to open Spiritleaf franchises and corporate stores throughout the country. The opening of our first locations in Alberta is a very important milestone for Inner Spirit and the Spiritleaf brand,” said Darren Bondar, President and CEO of Inner Spirit. “We’re executing on our vision and bringing the iconic Spiritleaf experience to new customers. Our extension of the Spiritleaf brand into Saskatchewan will be another key achievement in our expansion strategy. We have our sights firmly set on a national brand experience with the Spiritleaf franchise and corporate store offerings.”

In Alberta, the Company’s 23 other municipally approved locations are in various stages of construction and subject to receipt of final license approvals from the applicable municipalities and the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission. It also has conditionally secured an additional 17 locations. Inner Spirit expects to open corporate stores in Calgary, Edmonton and Jasper, Alberta, along with 14 franchise locations across the province before the end of 2018.

In Ontario, Spiritleaf continues to expand its highly successful corporate and franchise model in anticipation of submitting initial recreational cannabis dispensary license applications to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario beginning in December. The Company is working within the new regulations for the licensing and operation of private cannabis stores announced on November 14 by the Ontario Government. To date, Inner Spirit has granted 20 franchises in Ontario, secured leases for up to 40 locations, and expects to pursue a maximum of 75 stores in the province per the new regulations.
