Tokyo Smoke Cannabis Retail Stores are Coming to Manitoba

Tokyo Smoke, the Canadian Cannabis Awards Brand of the Year, has completed the Cannabis Retail Organization Agreement and Cannabis Store Retailer Agreements with the Province of Manitoba and is set to open an initial four stores in the province.

Tokyo Smoke, with its education first approach to cannabis, will begin their expansion into Manitoba by opening up to four locations in the City of Winnipeg and one in the City of Brandon. Tokyo Smoke’s Retail Organization Agreement enables it to build up to ten stores in the province including Dauphin, Portage la Prairie and Thompson, subject to social responsibility location reviews. The immersive, experiential retail environments will be the first cannabis dispensing stores for the award-winning retailer, building on their existing coffee and design focused accessory stores that already operate in Toronto and Calgary.

“We are very excited to bring our Tokyo Smoke retail experience to Manitoba. It will be the first chance for customer to experience the exciting plans we have for the future of cannabis in Canada” said Alan Gertner, Managing Director of Tokyo Smoke. “From our first in class retail environments to our exceptional line-up of cannabis brands, including our own female health and wellness brand Van der Pop, we could not be happier that Winnipeg will be the first of dozens of stores across the country to open”.
