Detroit-based cannabis company Gage Growth Corp. (CSE: GAGE) (OTCQX: GAEGF) will open the first Cookies store in Canada, expanding the popular American brand’s presence across the border.

The store, located at 278A Queen St. West in Toronto, will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday.

It will offer Cookies- and Gage-branded products cultivated exclusively by Hamilton-based licensed producer NOYA Cannabis Inc.

San Francisco-based Cookies was founded in 2010 by Gilbert Anthony Milam Jr., commonly known by his rap alias Berner, and his growing partner Jai.

The company says it has a collection of over 70 proprietary cannabis strains, and more than 2,000 products. It currently owns over 40 retail locations across Israel, Spain and the Netherlands.

The Toronto store will feature cultivars selected by Berner and Jai including Lemonnade, Minntz, Runtz, Grandiflora and Powerzzzup among others.

“Working with Berner and his team to finally introduce Cookies to the Canadian market validates the painstaking processes we’ve developed at Gage, and we’re eager to provide Canadian audiences with our unique and engaging retail platform,” Gage CEO Fabian Monaco said.

Gage currently has three cultivation and production assets, and 19 stores.

“It feels good to be in a position to diversify the current flavor profile on the Canadian market, with a flagship store in Toronto,” Berner said in a statement.

“I think the Canadian connoisseur will be proud to have Cookies, and Noya already has our standards dialed in as far as cultivation goes, and made a powerful introduction for the Cookies brand in Canada.”
