FORT LEE, NJ, Dec. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — GD Entertainment and Technology (OTC: GDET) (“GDET” or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the CBD, Blockchain, and Luxury Retail markets, is excited to announce that the Company is entertaining a tangible offer to expand its “The Greenery” (TheGreeneryCo.com) CBD products physical retail exposure to a second, and larger, mall-based physical store location following positive branding and customer traffic data for its first mall-based physical store location.
“Following an extremely positive experience at the kiosk level at Palisades Center, we have been approached by management at that location and given a priority access option to expand to an additional and larger space in another similar mall,” noted Anil Idnani, CEO of GDET. “The vast bulk of the potential market for CBD products has no idea that they need to navigate to some backwater e-commerce portal to buy CBD-based products. Instead, they are walking around popular shopping areas, browsing for something new and interesting to try – and CBD is that new and interesting possibility. The only way to capture any piece of that market is to be in front of them, out in the world.”
The Company’s first “The Greenery” physical store location opened in late November at Palisades Center in West Nyack, New York, the second-largest shopping mall in the New York metropolitan area and the eighth-largest in the United States. Following a strong debut at this location, the Company has been approached by Palisades Center management with a “first access” offer on an additional 500 square foot store location at a different mall in the state of New York with similar overall characteristics.
The Company continues to believe that a physical store presence in high traffic areas is a winning strategy for brand expansion and sales growth, and perhaps the only means of powerful brand differentiation in the rapidly growing CBD marketplace.
“If we move forward with this second location, it will be because we have run the numbers and the store will more than pay for itself,” continued Mr. Idnani. “At this point, we believe we can be selective and expand as the right opportunities come along. But we also believe that this approach to distribution is on target for this market because we gain an edge in brand exposure that will pay priceless dividends down the road as this marketplace continues to go mainstream over coming quarters.”
