Matchbox Cannabis Launches First Store in Toronto’s Junction Neighbourhood

Matchbox Cannabis, an Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario-authorized recreational cannabis store, today announced that its flagship location in Toronto is now open for business. Located in the Junction neighbourhood, at 3069 Dundas St West, the store will sell legal cannabis products and accessories. This family-owned and operated store represents the first of two Matchbox Cannabis locations opening this year – a second location, in Sault Ste. Marie, is expected to open in late January.

“We’re thrilled to finally be opening the doors of our first Matchbox Cannabis location,” said Matchbox Cannabis co-owner, Tatyana Parkanskaia. “Launching a brand and opening a store during the pandemic has had its challenges, but the Junction community has been extremely supportive as we prepare for the launch of the store. We’re excited to supply the community with high-quality cannabis products and experiences.”

Having previously owned businesses in the Junction and Roncesvalles community for over 20 years, Tatyana and Vlad Parkanskaia, the husband and wife team behind Matchbox Cannabis, have strong roots in the community. Their first location will provide click-and-collect and curbside pickup through their website, along with an in-store shopping experience in line with government regulations. Staffed by cannabis connoisseurs and sommeliers, the Junction shop also will provide one-on-one consultations, by appointment only, to introduce customers to their brand and the available products.

“With over 1,000 square feet of retail space, Matchbox Cannabis will be able to offer clients a one-of-a-kind cannabis experience,” said J.R. Wideman, Operations Manager at Matchbox Cannabis. “We are excited to bring exceptional cannabis brands, such as Tweed, Stundenglass gh and Spinach, to our new location and to the Junction community.”
