“The new Offside Cannabis branding and messaging reinforces SPDR Cannabis’ history of delivering a customer centric operations strategy, and emphasizes on providing customers with good value at a reasonable price point,” says Christina Pan, Chief Operating Officer of Spyder, noting that the Company has two operating cannabis dispensaries under the SPDR Cannabis banner, which the new brand will be replacing.

“Value doesn’t have to be boring, and this new design is positioned to combine our fun culture with the value we’re offering,” Ms. Pan adds, noting that the interior aesthetic of the store features bright colours and edgy designs.

“We recognize the importance and growth of the value-focused customer segment, our new Offside Cannabis brand was designed to specifically service this group of individuals. Furthermore, our business model focuses on serving big-city-adjacent communities, rather than upper, mid, or downtown core consumers,” she adds. “We’re ‘off-to-the-side’ of those markets, as well as the industry as a whole.”

“This brand launch is part of our strategy to grow into new and emerging markets,” says Dan Pelchovitz, Chief Executive Officer of Spyder’s Cannabis Division. “We expect to apply for three additional Retail Store Authorizations in Hamilton, Ottawa and The Blue Mountains for premises within our existing lease portfolio. This would increase our dispensary footprint to a total of seven locations in Ontario, which should be well underway before the end of the year.”

In order to accelerate Spyder’s growth and dispensary footprint, the Company is examining additional opportunities to convert other 180 Smoke Vape Store locations to dispensaries to leverage 180 Smoke’s current customer base of over 230,000 registered accounts.

The first two Offside Cannabis dispensary locations are expected to roll out in Niagara Falls, located at 6474 Lundy’s Lane and 5719 Victoria Avenue, respectively.
