Ayr Wellness Announces Opening of its Relocated Dania Beach Store in Florida
MIAMI, Aug. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ayr Wellness Inc. (CSE: AYR.A, OTCQX: AYRWF) (“Ayr” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated U.S. multi-state cannabis operator, announces the opening of its relocated Dania Beach store, offering an elevated patient experience.
The new store, located at 222 N Federal Hwy, Ste. 103, Dania Beach, FL 33004, is just over a mile away from the former location and moments away from the Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport and the major intersection of US-1 and A1A.
“We’re happy to reopen in Dania Beach, a community where we’ve received strong support from the local patient population, with our newly relocated dispensary. Patients who visited our former location will find an upgraded retail experience and an array of newly introduced products and brands, complementing the offerings they’ve come to love. The new location is indicative of the improvements we continue to make in our Florida operation, which includes our 50 retail locations and our suite of branded products,” said Jonathan Sandelman, Founder and CEO of Ayr.
The new store spans more than 2,000+ sq. ft. of retail space and offers patients an expansive menu, including brands and products from Ayr’s national portfolio, such as Kynd premium whole flower, Walking Stix pre-rolls, Entourage vapes and Secret Orchard vapes, distillates and edibles.
Ayr relocated its U.S. headquarters from New York City to Miami following it acquisition of Liberty Health Sciences in 2021, underscoring the Company’s commitment to the region. Since the acquisition, Ayr has expanded its retail footprint by more than 60% and has introduced its suite of national brands and products to its dispensaries statewide. Today, Ayr Wellness proudly employs more than 745 people across the state of Florida, including corporate, retail and production positions.
Florida has more than 745,000 patients enrolled in its medical marijuana program as of August 26, 2022, per Florida OMMU. Florida’s cannabis market ranks fourth in the nation by total legal cannabis sales, per BDSA, and generated over $1.8 billion in medical cannabis revenue in 2021. BDSA expects Florida’s legal cannabis market to generate $3.4 billion per year by 2026.
