High Tide Opens First Canna Cabana in Pickering, Ontario

High Tide Inc., the high-impact, retail-forward enterprise built to deliver real-world value across every component of cannabis, announced today that its Canna Cabana retail cannabis store located at 1105 Kingston Road, Pickering Ontario will begin selling recreational cannabis products and consumption accessories for adult use. This opening will mark High Tide’s 171st Canna Cabana branded retail cannabis location in Canada, the 62nd in the province of Ontario and the first store in the city of Pickering.

This brand-new Canna Cabana is situated in Brookdale Centre, the heart of Pickering’s retail shopping district. Located along the major thoroughfare of Kingston Road, this Brookdale Centre store is just 10 minutes from Highway 401, the major artery connecting all the cities in the Greater Toronto Area. It is also a short drive away from Pickering Town Centre, the primary shopping mall in the region. ELITE and Cabana Club members can easily access this new location while shopping at one of many national anchor tenants, such as a major home improvement store, a home decor and craft supplier, and one of the largest Canadian pharmacy retail chains, among several quick service restaurants.

“I am thrilled to announce the opening of our first store in the beautiful city of Pickering. This brand-new Brookdale Centre store is a continuation of our carefully curated retail strategy, opening in major retail power centres surrounded by strong anchor tenants. Cities in the GTA, like Pickering, are some of the fastest growing population centres in Canada, making them a natural choice as we expand Canna Cabana’s reach in Canada’s largest province,” said Raj Grover, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of High Tide.

“Pickering has a current population of over 100,000 residents and is projecting an annual growth rate of 5% over the next twenty years. It is clear that Canadians are moving into these cities as they look for affordable housing and opportunities outside of larger and more expensive cities like Toronto. The growth in Pickering and cities just like it holds tremendous potential for Canna Cabana retail stores in the coming months and years. We have some exciting stores in our construction pipeline, so stay tuned for those announcements coming soon,” added Mr. Grover.
