The Most Well-Known Brand in Cannabis To Begin Delivering in California in July
LOS ANGELES, June 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hightimes Holding Corp., the owner of High Times®, the most well-known brand in cannabis, announced today that it will begin operating the first of its planned retail delivery businesses within California next month. The company will open its offering with coverage areas spanning Los Angeles and the Bay Area, and looks to quickly expand to providing state-wide access.
“During this time of increased social distancing, retail delivery is one of the safest, quickest and most effective ways to obtain products of any type – and cannabis is no different.” Hightimes Holding Corp.’s Chief Executive Officer Peter Horvath stated. “The world has seen the retail model flipped on its head as the ongoing shift in consumer preference from physical stores to mobile (delivery and click and collect) just accelerated a decade in just a few weeks. We have always contemplated mobile as an essential component of our business, and today we are excited to get started in California, a large, robust, and sophisticated cannabis market.”
High Times announced earlier this year it’s intent to enter the cannabis retail market through an agreement with Harvest Health and Recreation, which saw the Multi-State Operator invest it’s 13 California retail assets into the industry heavyweight.
“For clarification, in regard to our recently announced acquisition of California dispensaries, it’s never been about delivery or retail – We believe in a customer centric view where the customer shops from their phone, in a physical store, and transacts wherever it’s most convenient. Customers are channel agnostic, and we are committed to building a business that supports this better than our competitors with a seamless experience regardless of where a transaction begins and ends.”
The announcement comes on the cusp of the High Times Regulation A + IPO campaign.
