VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hobo Cannabis Company (“Hobo”) today announces the opening of its newest retail location in the heart of Downtown Toronto (330 Yonge Street). Opening with the opportunity for customers to purchase in-store via pre-order and pickup or using its free, same-day home delivery service, today’s announcement marks the first of 10 Hobo Cannabis Company retail stores to join the thriving Toronto market. Hobo’s exciting expansion into Toronto is a new, yet familiar encounter – one that comes by way of its independent parent company, Donnelly Group, which first established roots in the city in 2016 through its revered pub, Belfast Love.
“It’s definitely a surreal moment to experience Hobo’s roots as Donnelly Group manifesting in the most literal way as we open up for business at Yonge-Dundas,” said Harrison Stoker, Vice President of Donnelly Group. “By way of Belfast Love, Walrus Pub, and Death & Taxes, our talented hospitality team at Donnelly Group has earned themselves an outstanding reputation in this city which truly laid the groundwork for Hobo’s entrance into Toronto this year. We feel especially fortunate to be launching in Toronto, for the opportunity it allows us to give back to the city as well as our much loved hospitality staff, who now have the chance to come back to work and apply their skill sets in retail at Hobo.”
Set to swiftly secure Toronto market share, Hobo is on track to open at least 9 additional locations in the city, giving Torontonians unprecedented access to the retailer’s unique cannabis buying experience and product offering.
Located at 330 Yonge Street, Hobo’s Toronto store opens for business today with free, same-day home delivery, pickup, and a safely operated in-store experience. The news follows in close succession with another recent Hobo store opening in Timmins, Ontario, and marks the launch of Hobo’s tenth retail store in Canada.
