ENGLEWOOD, Fla., Aug. 6, 2020 /CNW/ - 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 its latest storefront. Englewood will be home to the Company's 56th dispensary nationwide and 54th in its home state of Florida.
Situated in Englewood, which stretches into both Sarasota and Charlotte counties, the dispensary supports Trulieve's goal of expanding and ensuring direct, reliable patient access to medical cannabis throughout the state. It also joins the Company's 53 other Florida dispensaries, including those in nearby Port Charlotte, Venice, and North Fort Myers.
"While this year has definitely seen its challenges, we've worked hard to maintain our company's mission of providing innovative cannabis products and an authentic, high-quality customer experience, with our dedicated Trulievers supporting us every step of the way. Expanding our reach and providing safe, reliable access to the high-quality medications patients rely on is one of the best ways we can connect with patients directly, and we're grateful to have the opportunity to offer direct access to patients in both Sarasota and Charlotte counties," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "As with all of our openings recently, we've taken precautions and measured steps to best ensure the health and safety of our staff and patients. We're excited for the opportunity to serve the Englewood community, and look forward to doing so for years to come."
To commemorate the brand-new dispensary, all patients — from those new to Trulieve to our strong Truliever community — will be eligible for a 25% in-store discount at the Englewood location on opening day. In line with policies that have been adopted statewide, all visitors will be required to wear masks inside the dispensary. At this time, only patients and their state-approved caregivers will be allowed inside the waiting room and dispensary.
