July 16, 2019 – Vancouver, BC: The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) pleased to announce that it has formed an alliance with on demand delivery service ParcelPal Technology Inc. (CSE:PKG) (CSE: PKG) (FSE: PT0) (OTC: PTNYF) for same day and on demand delivery and sale of hemp based cosmetics from Yield Growth’s subsidiary Urban Juve in Canada.
This initiative between Yield Growth and ParcelPal will commence in Vancouver as the catalyst city, and it is expected that additional cities will be rapidly added to this distribution network across Canada. Urban Juve’s customers will be able to purchase through Urban Juve’s website (www.urbanjuve.com) and ParcelPal will be creating an exclusive new category on their platform for Health and Beauty, where Urban Juve products will be available for purchase. Any orders made before 3pm will arrive the same day, and on orders over $65, shipping will be free within Canada.
Customers will be able to track their purchase in real time and have their product delivered to any location they specify. As time and regulations allow, ParcelPal’s cannabis network is expected to continue to grow, with the goal of capturing a major piece of Canada’s legal cannabis market, which BDS Analytics estimates will grow to $5.2B by 2024.
ParcelPal President and CEO, Kelly Abbott states, “ParcelPal is thrilled to be working with an innovative company such as The Yield Growth Corp, which is addressing one of the fastest-growing subsegments of what, according to the Global Wellness Institute is a $4.2 trillion wellness market, with uniquely derived and cannabis infused products. This marks a milestone at ParcelPal, launching a new vertical with substantial growth potential. It’s also a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of an exciting new industry with our unique logistics solutions.”
According to Go People, up to 61% of shoppers are willing to pay extra for the convenience same day delivery brings, including saving time and a trip to go pick up the goods. From a business perspective, same-day delivery increases customer satisfaction and can create a lot of repeat business from customers. Go People says that offering same-day delivery can help a business gain a competitive edge over 85% of other industry players and businesses that have same-day delivery capabilities position themselves well to attain twice as much conversion and significant increases in year-over-year sales.
“This new agreement is part of our continued efforts to serve our customers as seamlessly as possible,” says Penny White, CEO of Yield Growth. “ParcelPal is a great service, and our partnership will lay the groundwork for us to eventually offer same-day delivery service for pain management cannabis topicals and other cannabis products in jurisdictions where they’re legal.”
