/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES/

EDMONTON, Nov. 26, 2019 /CNW/ - Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. ("FFHC") (TSX: FAF) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Fire & Flower Inc.

Fire & Flower now owns or has interest in 36 cannabis retail store licences across the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and the Yukon territory.

The Company anticipates the locations to open and be selling cannabis products during the week of December 16, 2019. The new stores will be located at the following addresses:

"The opening of three additional cannabis retail stores continues to demonstrate Fire & Flower's commitment to achieving our store roll-out plan of 45 stores before the Company's fiscal year end of February 1, 2020," shared Trevor Fencott, Fire & Flower's Chief Executive Officer.

The grand opening and operating hours of these new stores will be announced on Fire & Flower's website at www.fireandflower.com/locations/ and on social media channels at its earliest opportunity.

The Company continues to focus on opening new retail stores across Alberta, where the AGLC continues to issue retail licences, and in other Canadian provinces where the private sale of retail cannabis is permitted.
