ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 27, 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 its latest Florida dispensary. Starting on Friday, August 28th, St. Petersburg-Tyrone will be home to the Company's 59th dispensary nationwide and 57th in Florida. It will be the Company's second dispensary in St. Petersburg and will directly support patients throughout Pinellas County.
Located off 22nd Avenue, the dispensary supports Trulieve's goal of expanding and ensuring direct, reliable patient access to medical cannabis across its homestate of Florida. It also joins the Company's 56 other dispensaries statewide, including our St. Petersburg North location and others throughout Tampa and Clearwater.
"We believe in creating a culture of authentic, customer-driven retail experiences, and we've learned a lot about that in our three years in St. Petersburg. Connecting with patients, working with them towards better, natural relief has led to some truly great and innovative products. Thanks to the support of our strong Truliever community, we've been fortunate to see incredible growth since we first opened a store in St. Pete three years ago, and expanding access to the medications they've come to rely on is one of the ways we can say 'thank you,'" said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "Trulieve is looking forward to many more years of compassionate care and ground-breaking innovation for our Pinellas patients."
To commemorate the brand-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 St. Petersburg-Tyrone 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.
