Meta Growth Announces Opening of New Cannabis Retail Store in Winnipeg

Meta Growth Corp., a Canadian recreational cannabis retailer, today announced the opening of a new Meta Cannabis Supply Co. cannabis retail store located at 2859 Pembina Highway in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Pembina South Store is META’s fifth store in Winnipeg, and the Company’s ninth store in the province.

The Pembina South Store officially opened its doors on September 22nd to the area and customers, inviting them to explore products by Canada’s top Licensed Producers, meet with the highly educated retail team (known as “Friendly Guides”) and enjoy opening week promotions of great prices on select items, and giveaways (while supplies last).

The Pembina South Store, purpose built by the META team, is META’s third new store to open within the last 30 days. The other two stores were both acquired – one in Waterloo, Ontario and the other in Kitchener, Ontario.

As previously announced on August 21, 2020, META and High Tide Inc. (“High Tide”) entered into a definitive arrangement agreement pursuant to which High Tide will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of META (the “Plan of Arrangement”). The combined entity following completion of the Plan of Arrangement (the “Combined Entity”) is expected to be the largest Canadian cannabis retailer by revenue, and plans to have 115 locations throughout Canada by the end of 2021, pending regulatory approvals in the various provinces.
