"Q3 has proven Planet 13's resilience and strength. We drove an impressive rebound in sales and a record quarter by making operational improvements in response to COVID-19. The improvements have led to higher average tickets and conversion rate despite the reduced tourist traffic. Along with these operational improvements at the store, our delivery and curbside pickup have expanded our revenue from Las Vegas residents," said Larry Scheffler Co-CEO of Planet 13. "We are opening our neighbourhood dispensary in Q4 and continuing to drive increased delivery and curbside sales to increase our share of sales to Las Vegas residents."
Bob Groesbeck Co-CEO of Planet 13 added, "We started wholesaling our products at the end of June, and are rapidly gaining momentum. We are now in 33 dispensaries across the state and expect this to grow as our brands continue to gain name recognition. Between wholesale and retail sales our edible, concentrate, and beverage lines are among the top 10 selling SKUs statewide. In Q3, inhouse brands made up 25% of cannabis sales. In order to achieve the Company's goal of delivering a minimum of 50% of revenue from our in-house brands, we are transitioning our newly purchased indoor cultivation facility to our in-house strains to increase sales of our popular, high-margin, Medizin flower brand."
