Applications for nearly 700 cannabis stores are in the pipeline across the province, with Calgary rolling up far more of that retail bidding than Edmonton.
With the opening of the Edmonton location along with new store openings in Airdrie, Alberta and Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec, Sleep Country now has 256 locations across Canada and 33 stores in Alberta. The West Edmonton Mall store is Sleep Country's 5th interior mall location within Canada.

As of Monday, 67 companies and individuals who paid the $5,600 application fee for a development permit were on a revised list of candidates.
