Cannabis retailer expands footprint across Western Canada with second Saskatchewan shopVancouver, B.C. (May 17, 2019) - After the successful launch of its inaugural storefront in Saskatoon last December, Kiaro is making history by opening the first cannabis shop in La Ronge. The Vancouver-based cannabis brand has earned a respected reputation for providing the public with safe and reputable products in shops across Western Canada, as well as an e-commerce platform that offers free shipping across Saskatchewan.
Kiaro’s expansion across Saskatchewan supports the company’s ongoing commitment to providing the public with inviting, convenient and appealing retail spaces. Shoppers will find a customized experience that encourages curiosity, exploration and education, and promotes the responsible use of cannabis to enhance life enjoyment.
“The launch of Kiaro’s La Ronge store marks an important milestone in our journey towards helping dissolve the stigma that surrounds cannabis,” said Daniel Petrov, CEO of Kiaro. “By opening retail locations across diverse communities in Canada, we hope to engage and educate a wider audience about appropriate and safe cannabis use, and increase accessibility for those who wish to incorporate cannabis into their lives.”
Adhering to its core value of customer-forward service, Kiaro’s product portfolio is strategically curated to appeal to both the cannabis curious and the connoisseur. The store will stock a diverse range of products and accessories, including dried flower, pre-rolls, tinctures and capsules; and a broader range will be available through the e-commerce platform.
All of Kiaro’s products are sourced from safe and reputable suppliers such as Aurora, Canopy Growth and Tilray. The inventory will continue to expand as new product categories, such as edibles, enter the regulated market.
Kiaro’s shops are staffed by well-informed consultants whose primary role is to provide the knowledge and resources customers need to make their own informed decisions. Stores are designed with the brand’s purpose in mind – “stand up and stand out to inspire stories of enjoyment” – with a purposefully minimalist layout that sets consumers at ease and allows the product to shine. Principles of contrast, line and form flow from the graphic language of the brand identity and throughout the retail space, exciting the senses through illusion, dimension and direction.
“We are thrilled to bring a curated cannabis experience to the La Ronge community,” said Eleanor Lynch, Senior Vice President of Operations. “In-store, visitors will enjoy a comfortable, tailored experience that addresses individual preferences. Those who prefer to shop online will find our e-commerce store easy to navigate and informative. In either case, visitors will find a refreshingly transparent approach to cannabis, and we hope the experience inspires them to become cannabis advocates themselves.”
Kiaro’s La Ronge store is located at 1220 La Ronge Avenue, and open 11am – 8pm Monday to Saturday. On Sunday the store will be open from 1pm – 8pm. The store is Kiaro’s second fully compliant location in Saskatchewan, with the other in Saskatoon. Kiaro’s online store stocks a diverse product portfolio whose items can be shipped for free to locations throughout Saskatchewan.
