CALGARY, AB, Feb. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - High Tide Inc. ("High Tide" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: HITI) (TSXV: HITI) (FSE: 2LYA), a leading retail-focused cannabis company with bricks-and-mortar as well as global e-commerce assets, announced today that its Canna Cabana retail cannabis store located at 11070 100 Avenue in Grande Prairie, Alberta, will begin selling recreational cannabis products for adult use as of tomorrow. This opening represents High Tide's 111th branded retail location across Canada, and 60th in Alberta, selling recreational cannabis products and consumption accessories. This store will also be High Tide's second to open in Grande Prairie, which is the largest city in northwestern Alberta with a population of almost 65,000. The new Canna Cabana store is located in a power centre anchored by a major international discount retailer, at the well-trafficked intersection of Highways 40 and 43. It is also close to the main campus of Grande Prairie Regional College, on the opposite side of Highway 43.

"With the opening of this Canna Cabana location, we have reached yet another store count milestone in Alberta, the province where High Tide started and where we continue to be the single largest cannabis retailer," said Raj Grover, President and Chief Executive Officer of High Tide. "Alberta has been a leader in promoting a competitive and thriving retail cannabis market, and we remain committed to increasing our investment in the province as we continue to grow. Grande Prairie has one of the highest incomes per-capita in Alberta, with a consistently steady and stable economy. I look forward to bringing our discount club model and guaranteed low prices to even more Grande Prairians and Albertans over the coming weeks and months, including through the launch of e-commerce and delivery offerings as they will be permitted by March 8th of this year," added Mr. Grover.
