Introduced in Spring 2021, the Cannabis Xpress chain of stores opened its twelfth location over the weekend at 1692 Central St at Old Brock Rd. in the Claremont community in North Pickering, in the Durham County, east of Toronto. Not unlike its previous locations, the 1000 square foot unit with about 200 square feet of retail space utilizes a QSR approach, providing a smaller, conveniently located store to emphasize speed and convenience with a streamline product selection. Owner Chris Jones adds that the chain will be opening another location in November in a plaza at 2333 Church St. at Perkins Dr. in North Gower, a community located about 44-kilometres south of Ottawa in Eastern Ontario. Plans call for one or two more openings over the remainder of 2022 targeting the small-medium sized cities and towns across Ontario that have little or no competition in the area. Jones continues to source highly visible locations, under 1000 square feet.
