MERRITT ISLAND, Fla., Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (CSE: TRUL) (OTCQX: TCNNF) ("Trulieve" or "the Company"), a leading and top-performing cannabis company based in the United States, announced today the opening of a brand-new Florida dispensary. Merritt Island will be home to the Company's 60th dispensary in its home state of Florida and 62nd nationwide. The 6,500 sq. ft. location will directly support patients throughout Brevard County and along the Space Coast.
Located off the Merritt Island Causeway, the dispensary supports Trulieve's goal of expanding and ensuring direct, reliable patient access to medical cannabis across its home state of Florida. It also joins the Company's 59 other dispensaries statewide, including the nearby Melbourne, Titusville, and Port St. Lucie locations.
"When identifying new locations, we focus first on access; particularly, how we can best support patients across Florida. With approximately 90,000 new patients joining the state's registry over the past six months, our goal is to ensure that they have access to the products they've come to rely on," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "Our latest Merritt Island location is particularly exciting as it will not only be one of our larger stores, but it will allow us to better support our dedicated Trulievers along the Space Coast. From new patients to experienced ones, we're looking forward to celebrating natural, effective relief across Brevard."
In honor of the Company's new dispensary, all patients — from those new to Trulieve to the dedicated Truliever community — will be eligible for a 25% in-store discount at the new Merritt Island location on opening day. In line with policies that have been adopted statewide, all visitors will be required to wear masks inside the dispensary. Additionally, only patients and their state-approved caregivers will be allowed inside the waiting room and dispensary at this time.
