The “Ontario Cannabis Store” will be the brand name of Ontario’s cannabis agency, including its stores and online channel.
Officials say the name is designed to convey a safe, simple and approachable environment for consumers, and agency employees, in a clear and easily understood manner.
Cannabis Stores and Online Shop to be Powered by Shopify
Canadian commerce platform Shopify will be powering the in-store and online sales channels for the Ontario Cannabis Store.
Shopify’s software is designed to support businesses who sell across multiple channels, including mobile, social media, brick-and-mortar shops and more.
Shopify will provide a cloud-based retail solution for both on and offline sales, so consumers can have a reliable and integrated shopping experience across desktop, mobile and in-store points-of-sale.
Shopify will also supply the technology to power screens throughout the physical stores that give consumers product and health information which will follow federal guidelines and marketing provisions. The in-store point-of-sale system will operate through iPad hardware.
