World-Class Extractions (CSE:PUMP) subsidiary, Pineapple Express Delivery (PED) is expanding its delivery services to include alcohol.
The subsidiary already provides a service in which it deliver recreational and medical cannabis to patients. To expand these services, PED has entered into a delivery agreement with The Saskatoon Co-operative Association’s Liquor Division.
The Saskatoon Co-op operates retail liquor stores, in accordance with the Alcohol Control Regulations.
As part of the agreement, PED will deliver liquor from Saskatoon Co-op’s Wine-Spirits-Beer retail stores to customers. Saskatoon Co-op Liquor Division’s Manager, Dawn Wreford, welcomed the agreement.
“During the COVID-19 outbreak and moving forward, we want to provide our customers in Saskatoon, Warman, and Martensville with safe and convenient access to our wine, spirits, and beer products. We are thrilled to be working with Pineapple Express Delivery to offer our customers same and next day delivery service,” she said.
The demand for delivery of products such as cannabis, alcohol, and general groceries is currently at an all-time high. In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, social distancing has become the new norm. As such, consumers are looking to collect their necessary goods in a contact-free way.
PED has taken precautionary measures in order to maintain safety and hygiene procedures for workers and customers. This includes training the delivery drivers to understand the necessary procedures to keep them and the consumers safe. In addition to physical distancing practices, drivers will also have personal protection equipment kits every day.
WCE’s CEO, Rosy Mondin, commented on the development and COVID-19’s impact.
“Pineapple Express Delivery is making a strategic move by capitalizing on its premium delivery services in the legal cannabis markets and expanding into other industries.
“With COVID-19 having an unprecedented impact on our daily lives, Pineapple Express Delivery is helping to minimize the impact by providing reliable delivery services so that consumers have confidence their purchases will arrive at their door in a safe and timely fashion,” she said.
Randy Rolph of Pineapple Express Delivery also spoke about the service expansion.
“I’m really excited to enable home deliveries for Saskatoon Co-op customers through Pineapple Express Delivery, especially during these unparalleled times. Staying home means staying safe for many Canadians. Consumers can rest assured that their delivery meets the highest standards in compliance, discretion, and customer experience,” he said.
