VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wildflower Brands Inc. (CSE: SUN, OTC:WLDFF) (the “Company”) is excited to announce that design work is completed for three prime locations in Manhattan. Construction is planned to begin this month with the opening targeted for November 2018, in time for the holiday season.
New York has the highest population density of any major city in the United States and is a top global tourist destination. New Yorkers and the world view the city as trend setting in many areas including health and wellness. These prime retail locations were chosen to give Wildflower maximum exposure to a vast number of people including some of the most active social media professionals in New York. The Wildflower by Bridges General branded stores will feature Wildflower’s existing online catalog of products as well as in-store only exclusive products designed specifically for the New York market. Bridges General is a unique retail concept by Wildflower’s partner Retail Worx. The first three locations include:
- 11 Times Square at the base of a 40-story office tower housing offices of Microsoft, British Telecom and E*Trade and is located directly across from The New York Times Building.
- 770 Broadway at the base of a 15-story mixed-use commercial office building. This location gives Wildflower products exposure to all the Facebook employees in New York as Facebook currently occupies almost half of the building. The building also serves as the New York or worldwide headquarters to several major global brands, including Huffington Post, Yahoo, AOL and Tumblr.
- 11 Madison Avenue at the base of a 30-story office tower. The building is adjacent to the vibrant Madison Square Park and is within steps of many of the neighborhood’s fine restaurants and shopping locations and houses Credit Suisse, Sony and Yelp.
William MacLean, CEO of Wildflower says, “The team has done an incredible job in designing these new Wildflower branded stores. The construction team is ready and expect to have the renovations completed within weeks, in time for Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, and the rest of the holiday season. We are thrilled to have such high visibility stores and intend to be the leading CBD brand in New York.”
