Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (OTC: FFLWF)(TSX:FAF) is keeping up with providing cannabis products to Ontario customers, while trying to reduce health risks both to its staff and customers in relation to COVID-19 pandemic.

The company and its subsidiary, Fire & Flower Inc., announced Wednesday that its Kingston and Ottawa customers will be served only via its Spark Perk Fastlane ‘click-and-collect’ service going forward.

The Spark Perks Fastlane service allows consumers to order products online, to speed up the payment and pickup processes in retail shop.

"We have rapidly commissioned a Pandemic Response Team within Fire & Flower with the focus of keeping our people safe and healthy while ensuring the continuity and sustainability of our business," Fencott added.
