VANCOUVER, British Columbia — May 19, 2021 /CNW/ — PlantX Life Inc. (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) (“PlantX” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce the launch of its new PlantX warehouse in Squamish, British Columbia. The new warehouse is a critical component of the Company’s expansion plans and will be used to support the Company’s supply chain for the distribution of indoor plants across Canada.
The PlantX warehouse is the result of the Company’s commitment to its indoor plant vertical. The global indoor plant market is expected to rise significantly at a growth rate of 10.24% and may reach a market size of USD 7,267 million by 2026.
“The increasing consumer demand for high-quality indoor plants has made this development a necessity moving forward and a crucial tool that will enable the Company to continue to improve customer satisfaction,” said PlantX Founder, Sean Dollinger. “The new space will allow PlantX to enhance the indoor plant offerings in Canada and distribute its plant products more efficiently. The warehouse is also an essential component of the Company’s expansion strategy which is focused on effective distribution of its products in the best conditions possible.”
The 3,000-square-foot warehouse facility is a partnership initiative between PlantX and Nootka & Sea, a privately held company that carries on the business of apothecary and cosmetics in British Columbia. The warehouse will be co-managed by PlantX and Nootka & Sea and is fully operational. It will be used to store and ship a variety of indoor plants, plant pots and plant accessories throughout Canada. Plant specialist Kay Stratichuk will oversee all warehouse operations, ensuring the plants receive expert maintenance care and that they are stored in optimal conditions. Ms. Stratichuk has extensive greenhouse management expertise and specialized training in horticultural science.
“The new warehouse facility is another proactive PlantX initiative that will help the Company grow and adapt to evolving customer demands and industry trends,” said PlantX CEO Julia Frank. “We are very excited to witness the positive impacts of this new development.”
PlantX will capitalize on the expertise the Company has gained throughout its wholly-owned subsidiary Bloomboxclub Limited (“Bloombox Club”), an e-commerce company based in the United Kingdom that sells and delivers indoor plants and plant accessories to its established wellness community. PlantX’s acquisition of Bloombox Club in November 2020 marked a significant milestone for the Company and Bloombox Club has since delivered impressive financial results. For the post-acquisition period between November 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021, Bloombox Club achieved gross revenue of $2,193,084, reflecting a 273% increase from the equivalent pre-acquisition period between November 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020. Cost of Goods Sold was $1,353,598 and $323,715 for the pre-acquisition and post-acquisition periods, respectively.
