Currently, there are 3,360 retail cannabis stores in Canada, a decrease of seven stores WoW, including four in Alberta, and three in Ontario. This marks the third consecutive week with no store additions. However, we do not believe the sector is undergoing a slowdown, as there is room for another 1,700 stores in the country. We believe that certain areas within major cities are oversaturated, leading to store closures amid high competition.
