The store will be located at 7108 MacLeod Trail in Calgary and will be the 19th Fire & Flower branded, licensed store location in the company’s retail network.

“Our team is excited to open a second licensed cannabis retail store in the major market of Calgary and we look forward to welcoming Calgarians into our new location,” Trevor Fencott, the CEO of Fire & Flower said in a statement.

“Fire & Flower had built out this location in anticipation of the issuance of additional cannabis retail licences in the province of Alberta. Receiving our licence to operate this store validates our strategy of building locations in advance and creates a clear path to rapidly opening new markets,” Fencott added.

The second Calgary licensed store is expected to open the week of July 8. The location has been open since January 2019 to showcase the Fire & Flower retail experience including cannabis education.

Once cannabis products have been received, the location will offer a full assortment of cannabis products from licensed producers.
