GrowLife Announces Retail License Program

National Retail Expansion Program Starts in Philadelphia

KIRKLAND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GrowLife, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT), one of the nation’s most recognized indoor
cultivation service providers, announced today the launch of the
GrowLife Retail License Program.

The recent elections validated the nationwide demand for indoor
cultivation by commercial growers as well as consumers. GrowLife’s
Retail License Program repositions the Company to serve States with laws
that support such cultivation, as well as addressing the increasing
demand for indoor farming of healthier and localized fruits and
vegetables. This groundbreaking program will work with independent
business partners to license the GrowLife brand and work with the
Company’s core team to open GrowLife branded stores. These stores will
be either new stores or stores within existing retail outlets, creating
a GrowLife store-within-a-store to introduce hydroponics products to
their customers.

Starting with Fairmount Hardware, an Ace Hardware franchise store in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, hydroponic customers will find the most
popular hydroponics equipment and supplies in the GrowLife

“GrowLife is a well recognized and respected brand in the hydroponics
world, and their Program will allow Fairmount Hardware to provide the
very best hydroponics equipment and supplies to our local cultivation
customers,” stated Ms. Ellie Siegel, partner of Christopher Herghelegiu,
from Fairmount Hardware.

The GrowLife Retail License Program offers new and existing hydroponic
and home supply stores the ability to brand their stores as GrowLife and
gain access to GrowLife’s 15,000 product hydroponic supply chain, which
will provide their customers with local access to hydroponics equipment
and supplies for popular indoor controlled farming.

“After exploring this License Program for sometime with several licensee
candidates, we are excited to begin the roll-out in Philadelphia with
Fairmount Hardware, an Ace Hardware franchise, and extend GrowLife’s
coverage for our customers. Our shareholders will also benefit with
GrowLife’s financial shift from a fixed to variable-cost business
model,” said Marco Hegyi, GrowLife CEO. “The demand for hydroponic
gardening and farming, which continues to grow, will now be served with
localized GrowLife-branded retail partners that understand how to apply
innovative indoor growing equipment and supplies ranging from specialty
lighting and clean growing media to healthy and safe nutrients.”

“The cost-effective expanded coverage of GrowLife’s products and
services will allow us to better serve new urban farmers in all states
across the country and enhance the GrowLife business in a constructive
way,” said Joe Barnes, Senior vice-president, Business Development, at
GrowLife. Mr. Barnes has been responsible for GrowLife’s retail
expansion and optimization for many years. Mr. Barnes added: “By
bringing retail partners into GrowLife, we can focus on sharing our
expertise and marketing, while our local licensees build their local
sales and services.”
