VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 8, 2017 / ParcelPal Technology Inc. (CSE: PKG.CN) (PT0.F) (OTC PINK: PTNYF) ("ParcelPal" or the "Company"), a technology driven logistics company that offers on-demand delivery of merchandise from leading retailers, restaurants, medical marijuana dispensaries, and liquor stores, is pleased to announce that they have signed a medical marijuana dispensary chain in Toronto, Canada that currently operates six dispensaries. These dispensaries are taking advantage of ParcelPal's technology solution to provide their customers with an on-demand delivery experience. ParcelPal expects to begin service in the greater Toronto Area imminently.
With the 15 store nation-wide dispensary chain announced January 27th, the 5 Vancouver dispensaries announced February 22, and, now, this Toronto based chain, ParcelPal now has over 25 medical marijuana dispensaries signed up across Canada.
President, Kelly Abbott, states, "As medical marijuana is one of the key verticals we are targeting, it has become evident to major industry players that ParcelPal's on demand delivery is a value-added resource to any dispensary wishing to grow their sales and outreach to their patients. We are very pleased with the rapid adoption of our technology by dispensaries, and we plan on taking this vertical a step further with an expansion into Toronto. We are very excited to begin building a national brand that consumers from all verticals will recognize."
CEO, Jason Moreau, states, "Delivery is critical for chronically ill patients who otherwise have to drive long distances or who may have minimal access to transportation. Our technology platform helps our partner dispensaries manage medical marijuana deliveries efficiently, while effectively maintaining regulatory compliance."
Customers that order marijuana through ParcelPal will be required to provide their date of birth at checkout to confirm they are 19 years or older and a current medical marijuana patient in Canada. In order for marijuana to be delivered, the recipient must be 19 years or older and must also be present to sign for the delivery and show proof of legal age with a valid photo ID.
ParcelPal now has platforms live with four verticals - Retailers, Liquor, Restaurants, and Marijuana Dispensaries - and has customers signed up with each.
