AYR Wellness Opens Two New Retail Locations in Florida
MIAMI, April 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AYR Wellness Inc. (CSE: AYR.A, OTCQX: AYRWF) (“AYR” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated U.S. multi-state cannabis operator (“MSO”), today announced that it has opened two new retail stores in Florida located in Winter Haven and Palatka.
“Our consistent advancements in Florida make for an exciting story for AYR and will remain a strong focal point as we continue to prioritize the markets and initiatives that drive the most growth for the Company,” said David Goubert, President and CEO of AYR. “These new store openings expand our Florida footprint to 59 retail stores and further broaden our reach in the state, allowing us to introduce AYR’s elevated customer experience and selection of high-quality offerings to more customers and communities. We look forward to creating lasting relationships with our patients who visit these new locations and continuing to grow our presence throughout the state.”
The new Winter Haven and Palatka stores are in prime, easily accessible locations. The Winter Haven location features 4,500 sq. ft of retail space and a drive-thru for easy customer pick-up. The Palatka store is a freestanding location with more than 2,300 sq. ft. of retail space and is AYR’s first medical dispensary in Putnam County.
Both stores will offer many of AYR’s national brands and products and feature a “bud bar,” providing customers with a sensory experience showcasing samples of whole flower strains currently available for purchase. As AYR continues to open stores and expand its customer base in Florida, it is concurrently preparing for the transition from Liberty Health Sciences to AYR Cannabis Dispensary later this year.
Florida has more than 805,000 registered patients enrolled in its medical marijuana program as of April 7, 2023, per Florida OMMU.
