The acquisition’s finalization is expected to occur on Aug. 31, once all parties satisfy the conditions.

According to Thursday, the retail place is located , in the vicinity of Yonge-Dundas square.

Under the acquisition agreement, Fire & Flower would obtain the current Retail Operator License as well as Retail Store Authorization from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.

The store — located at 378 Yonge Street — will continue operating while it transitions to the Fire & Flower brand.

The Toronto-based company said it would announce the grand re-opening of the store on its website.

“As we begin to execute on our Ontario expansion strategy, Fire & Flower is thrilled to be acquiring this flagship location on Toronto’s high traffic Yonge Street,” said Fire & Flower CEO Trevor Fencott.

He expects that their focus on Ontario-based retail locations would “maximize revenue and margin opportunities for our business.”

Earlier this month, the company teamed up with cannabis manufacturer and distributor WeedMD Inc. (TSX-V: WMD) (OTCQX: WDDMF), which agreed to produce, package and ship Fire & Flower’s CBD product line.

The company confirmed that its product offering would be available in the province of Saskatchewan by mid-August, under the Revity brand name.
