National Access Cannabis Corp. Announces Licences to Open Three New Retail Cannabis Stores in Alberta

Published: June 19, 2019

National Access Cannabis Corp., Canada’s largest cannabis retailer according to provincial licensing statistics, has received three additional licences from the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (the “AGLC”) to open cannabis retail stores in Alberta. The retail stores will be located in the cities of Calgary, Edmonton and Airdrie. The announcement comes following the previously released news that the AGLC has lifted the moratorium on new cannabis retail licences.

The new retail locations are listed below:

NewLeaf Cannabis – Rundlehorn
110 – 3725 Rundlehorn Drive NE, Calgary

NewLeaf Cannabis – Jasper Park
Unit 101 8721 – 156 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta

NewLeaf Cannabis – Airdrie
Unit 7 – 8, 620 – 1st Ave NW, Airdrie, Alberta

“We’re growing rapidly in Alberta,” said Mark Goliger, CEO of NAC. “With three new licences and the new location recently opened June 5th in the Varsity neighbourhood in Calgary, we continue to expand our private cannabis retailing footprint in Alberta and our growth isn’t done. We have 15 additional licences submitted and 7 more stores built awaiting licensing and regulatory approval in Alberta.”

NAC is the national leader in retail cannabis. Currently operating in three provinces, NAC has applied for licences in British Columbia and plans to make applications for licences in Ontario once licensing opens up to more private retailers. NAC’s experienced team of retail industry professionals is focused on achieving its business plan of having 40 operating stores by the end of calendar 2019, and 110 operating stores by the end of calendar 2020.
