Curaleaf Opens Its 29th Store In Clearwater, Florida
The new store, located at 2082 Gulf to Bay Boulevard, is the company's 29th location in the Sunshine State. Offerings will include Curaleaf and Select brand products.
In response to the current health crisis, the store will offer curbside service as well as contactless and cashless payment.
"Curaleaf remains committed to the Florida market and its patients by providing high-quality medical cannabis products and new consumption formats that make cannabis accessible for all," the company's President Joe Bayern said in a statement. "We are thrilled to open Clearwater and support the health and wellness needs of more Floridians."
Meanwhile, in June, the Wakefield, Massachusetts-based company expanded its Select brand's footprint in four additional states, including Ohio, Florida, Maine, and Massachusetts.
