VANCOUVER, Aug. 6, 2019 /CNW/ – PRESS RELEASE – Choom, an emerging adult use cannabis company that has secured one of the largest national retail networks in Canada, has announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire The Green Room, a popular cannabis retail store chain which has operated since 2016. The agreement involves the purchase of location assets from The Green Room, which includes three locations in British Columbia and four locations in Alberta. The Green Room locations in Alberta and British Columbia feature several premiere locations for cannabis retail stores with multiple years of successful operation.
« Green Room was a highly successful operator that originally opened in Vancouver as a compassion club offering medicinal cannabis to their patients. Choom looks to build on the good reputation they have in the communities they served and open legal cannabis retail stores in their successful locations, » states Chris Bogart, president and CEO of Choom « Our priority for these locations are to bring our unique Choom experience that encourages sharing education with consumers about the safe and responsible use of cannabis. »
The two locations in Vancouver are expecting to receive development permits to operate legal cannabis retail stores. The location in Squamish has municipal approval and is awaiting approval from the Liquor & Cannabis Regulation Branch of British Columbia (LCRB).
Three of the four acquired locations in Alberta have received development permits from the applicable municipalities to operate cannabis retail stores. Choom will submit its applications for cannabis retail store licenses to the Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis Commission (AGLC) at its earliest convenience.
