Vancouver, BC – June 1, 2021– Choom Holdings Inc. (“Choom” or the “Company”) (CSE: CHOO; OTCQB: CHOOF), a fast-expanding Canadian retail cannabis Company, seeks to capitalize on regulatory changes announced this week by the B.C. government with its decision to greenlight Cannabis home delivery next month.
“We’re excited with this most recent announcement as it only further supports Choom’s strategic decision to bet big on digital” Corey Gillon, CEO states “Over the last year, we have invested heavily in being at the forefront of digital innovation within the cannabis space with the acquisition of the Platform WD Agency and subsequent build out of our own propriety, e-commerce platform. Choom is ready and enabled to expand our service model to meet the needs of our Vancouver customers allowing them to order cannabis when, where, and how they want. We applaud the decision by the BC government, and we remain optimistic other provinces will follow suit”.
Launching in March 2021, Choom spent the subsequent 8 months developing its own proprietary ecommerce platform, by its award-winning Marketing & Digital teams. Since launch, ongoing optimizations have enabled a best-in-class customer experience through its SEO, multi-store fulfillment model, and SMS notification system, to name a few.
Choom’s digital investment has accelerated the brand’s future strategy for cannabis retail and ecommerce, now further realizing its aspirations of a full omni-channel experience for its customers. The B.C. government decision to allow delivery has been part of a plan to shrink the illicit market, keep products away from youth, create a strong cannabis sector, and allow retailers to thrive in an increasingly competitive industry.
Choom™ is a fast-expanding retail cannabis company that has established one of the largest store networks in Canada. The Choom brand is inspired by Hawaii’s “Choom Gang”—a group of buddies in Honolulu during the 1970’s who loved to smoke weed—or as the locals called it, “Choom”. Evoking the spirit of the original Choom Gang, our brand caters to the Canadian market with the ethos of ‘cultivating good times’. Choom™ is focused on delivering an elevated customer experience through our curated retail environments, offering a diversity of brands for Canadians across a national retail network.
