FORT LEE, NJ - (NewMediaWire) - December 02, 2019 - 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 a strong Grand Opening and initial weekend performance in terms of both customer traffic and sales at The Greenery (https://thegreeneryco.com/) CBD products store located 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.
Management believes the strong turnout and interest seen during this initial weekend of sales at the store could indicate strong holiday sales in the weeks ahead. In addition, if the Company continues to see strong performance in terms of both customer engagement and product sales, GDET plans to open additional locations in similar venues.
“We saw a ton of foot traffic, sales volume that shows promise of a solid forecast, and a very good response from consumers in the store’s first week of open operations,” commented Anil Idnani, CEO of GDET. “This certainly justifies our strategy, and we plan to open additional stores in other high-traffic mall locations if we continue to see a strong response. It’s also important to note that the ramp in sales growth isn’t the only positive upshot we gain from this store. Based on Palisades Center data, we expect something like 10 million people could walk by our store and be exposed to our brand between now and the end of January, which is priceless exposure that we expect to pay off in many ways over time.”
The Greenery, Palisades Center, opened for business last week, and features products ranging from new CBD dog treats, honey hemp, face masks, CBD oils, CBD soft gels, and CBD salve, all bearing The Greenery’s premium quality ingredients and branding.
Management notes that strong growth in the overall CBD market in 2019 – over 700% growth, according to Brightfield Group data – has been fueled by a shift in the mode of distribution for CBD-based products from an entirely ecommerce-driven marketplace to growing placement of CBD-based products in physical stores where they can be “browsed” by an expanding customer base.
Mr. Idnani continued, “If you cater to only those people who already know they want CBD products and go to websites built to serve them, you are only going to be dealing with the same niche market. But when you put these products out there in front of shoppers at a popular mall or in a major retail chain store, you instantly massively expand the market you’re targeting. We have already sold a wide selection of products to customers who are trying CBD-based products for the first time. And we are proud they are starting with products from The Greenery. They will know exactly where they can conveniently find more.”
