April 21, 2021
/CNW/ – Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (“Fire & Flower” or the “Company”) (TSX: FAF) (OTCQX: FFLWF) and its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary Hifyre
Inc. (“Hifyre”), today announced the milestone achievement of 250,000 Spark Perks
members across the Fire & Flower retail network.
Spark Perks members receive special benefits where permitted, including: Spark Fastlane
click-and-collect checkout, personalized recommendations, curbside pickup, free rapid delivery, and exclusive deals. No cannabis purchase is required to join the free program.
The Sparks Perks program is now available across all Fire & Flower banners including Friendly Stranger, Happy Dayz and Hotbox and delivers personalized product recommendations to members.
“A core metric in our business is lifetime customer value and the cost of customer acquisition. We believe Spark Perks customers have the highest lifetime customer value in the industry through their larger basket sizes, more frequent visits and the diversity of products they consume,” said
, Chief Executive Officer of Fire & Flower. “While growing rapidly, we have also focused on a low cost of customer acquisition. Although metrics such as same store sales are important, as an evolved technology-enabled retail company we focus on customer engagement metrics that will be critical as our platform scales to the U.S.”
Key Metrics from the Spark Perks Program:
- Members who order from Same Day Rapid Delivery spend 110 per cent more than non-members and have 90 per cent larger baskets than non-members
- Members served through Fastlane pickup spend 49 per cent more than non-members in-store
- Members transacting in-store have 27 per cent larger basket sizes than non-members with 19 per cent more items in their baskets
The Spark Perks program leverages the Hifyre
advanced digital retail and analytics platform. Hifyre is the leading Canadian data and analytics platform within the cannabis industry and recently entered into a strategic agreement with BDS Analytics Inc. (“BDSA”) to incorporate Hifyre’s Canadian digital retail and analytics into BDSA’s existing online U.S.-based market research platform. As part of the agreement, BDSA will offer Hifyre IQ Canadian cannabis data to its U.S.-based clients and Hifyre will be able to provide U.S. data from BDSA to its Canadian clients, allowing both companies to offer enhanced, cross-border data to their respective consumer bases.
