This will make the integration of Choom into the Canna Cabana brand seamless,” said Raj Grover, president and CEO of High Tide. “While Choom had 17 operational stores before entering CCAA proceedings, we are able to acquire the nine locations that we want across three provinces at an attractive price of 3.8x annualized Adjusted EBITDA.

I look forward to giving a warm welcome to the team members from Choom as they join the High Tide family.”The stores have the following addresses:191 West 2nd Avenue in Vancouver, British Columbia.
