GrowGeneration Corp. (NASDAQ: GRWG) has purchased the assets of Portland, Oregon-based GrowWorld for an undisclosed amount.

A GrowGen statement said that “The GrowWorld acquisition is our 8th in 2019, adding an accretive $5.0 Million in revenue to our Company.  GrowWorld is one of the largest hydroponic stores in Oregon and strengthens our position in the Pacific Northwest region, that currently includes our Seattle location. With over 700 commercial cultivation licenses and a strong medical caregiver program, we feel we can capture a large market share of the Oregon hydroponic supply market.”

GrowGen owns and operates 26 stores, which include 5 locations in Colorado, 5 locations in California, 2 locations in Nevada, 1 location in Washington, 4 locations in Michigan, 1 location in Rhode Island, 4 locations in Oklahoma,1 location in Oregon and 3 locations in Maine.

Domination

Last month, GrowGen reported its earnings with net revenue increasing 159% to $21.8 million for the third quarter ending September 30, 2019, versus last year’s $8.4 million for the same time period. The company attributed the increase in revenues to the addition of 10 new stores opened or acquired after October 1, 2018, which delivered sales of $3.9 million in Q3 2019. Sales also increased as a result of the acquisition of a new store in mid-July 2018 that had sales of $2.3 million in the quarter and the new e-commerce site acquired in mid-September 2018  which had revenues of $1.4 million in the quarter.
