VANCOUVER, BC (November 5, 2019) — Hobo Cannabis Company (“Hobo”) today announces the opening of its fifth store nationally, located in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighborhood (1952 West 4th Avenue). This marks Hobo’s third Vancouver location, following their Airport (8425 Granville Street) and Main Street (4296 Main Street) locations, and fourth province-wide store with the Kelowna location (2121 Springfield Road). This announcement and rapid market expansion is indicative of the brand’s expertise in sourcing viable lease locations and navigating the regulatory framework around licensing, and reaffirms that Hobo is one to watch in the Canadian retail cannabis space.
“We’re thrilled to further our growth at home in Vancouver and especially proud to come full circle and open a location in the Kitsilano neighborhood, the birthplace of the Donnelly Group,” says Harrison Stoker, Vice President Brand at Donnelly Group. “The Vancouver community has always been the inspiration for this brand, and we could not be more excited to extend our offer of a disarming and compassionate cannabis buying experience to our hometown community.”
This news comes on the heels of Hobo’s recent announcement regarding its second Ontario store, located in Ottawa’s prime ByWard Market area. Additionally, a fourth Vancouver location has been licensed and is currently under construction in the city’s busy shopping district on Robson Street. Alberta will also see its first Hobo store in late 2019, following the recent acquisition of four locations with development permits.
Hobo Kitsilano will be open to the public seven days a week.
