TORONTO, April 20, 2022 /CNW/ – ShinyBud Corp. (“ShinyBud” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SNYB) today announced that it will celebrate the grand opening of its first drive-thru cannabis store located at 2200 Carling Avenue in Ottawa, Ontario on Saturday, April 23rd, 2022. ShinyBud Cannabis Co. on Carling Avenue is the only cannabis drive-thru experience in Ottawa and eastern Ontario, offering customers a convenient and efficient way to shop and pick-up cannabis products. Customers can pre-order cannabis products and consumption accessories on the website at www.shinybud.com/carling, or directly in the drive-thru by scanning the available QR code, and pick-up their order from the drive-thru window.
“We’re pleased to have opened eastern Ontario’s only drive-thru experience, providing customers with quick and convenient access to our lineup of carefully curated and award-winning cannabis products, and knowledgeable staff from the comfort of their vehicle,” said Kevin Reed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The store building previously housed one of Canada’s most iconic coffee chains and now serves the convenience of cannabis through the same drive-thru window. From coffee to cannabis, this unique store features a small bricks-and-mortar footprint allowing us to continue testing ideal store sizes that maximize revenue per square foot as we plan to open additional stores through our franchising program across Ontario.”
At the grand opening, complimentary coffee will be served at the drive-thru window starting at 10:00 a.m. ET with no purchase necessary, followed by a charity barbecue at noon(1) with 100% of the proceeds supporting Cannabis Amnesty. Customers will also enjoy free non-cannabis giveaways as well as product promotions throughout the day to mark the occasion.
Situated on a high-traffic road, ShinyBud Carling is cater-cornered from Carlingwood Shopping Centre which hosts a national grocer and national home goods store, and near a major liquor store and popular restaurants. It is ShinyBud’s seventh location in the Ottawa region and increases the Company’s store count to 41 corporate and licensed locations across Ontario. ShinyBud Cannabis Co. Carling is a corporate store.
ShinyBud is celebrating the 420 cannabis holiday by publishing its inaugural 420 Guide. The Guide presents consumers with a catalogue of new and best-selling products available at ShinyBud stores and will be published quarterly. The first 420 edition is available at all stores and accessible online at www.shinybud.com/420-guide.
