Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CURA /OTCQX: CURLF) (“Curaleaf” or the “Company”), a leading U.S. provider of consumer products in cannabis, is announcing new Curaleaf branding for the Company’s recently acquired retail locations and the opening of two new locations in Horsham and Philadelphia. The new Curaleaf-branded stores mark the company’s 11th and 12th locations in Pennsylvania. As a vertically integrated cannabis operator known for quality, expertise and reliability, Curaleaf is the largest national cannabis retail brand in the U.S., and will have 104 locations across 23 states following the opening of the two new Pennsylvania dispensaries.
Curaleaf successfully closed its acquisition of Grassroots on July 23, 2020. In connection with that deal, nine Herbology dispensaries in Pennsylvania—located in Altoona, Bradford, Brookville, Dubois, Gettysburg, King of Prussia, Lebanon, Morton and Philadelphia— have already been rebranded under the Curaleaf umbrella.
Over the coming week, Curaleaf will open two additional retail locations in the southeastern Pennsylvania market at 255 Horsham Road in Horsham and 5058 City Avenue in Philadelphia, marking the Company’s 103rd and 104th retail locations nationwide. A ribbon cutting ceremony with the Eastern Montgomery Chamber of Commerce at 9:30 a.m.commemorated Horsham’s opening on April 7th, and a ribbon cutting with the Main Line Chamber of Commerce will follow at the new City Avenue location at 8:50 a.m. ET on April 12th. A portion of proceeds from both opening days will be donated to the Central PA Food Bank and the Urban Affairs Coalition as a continuation of Feed the Block, an initiative of Curaleaf’s Corporate Social Responsibility program developed to combat and address food insecurity in the communities it serves.
“We are pleased to expand and strengthen our retail presence in Pennsylvania, offering our unparalleled patient care and education, as well as access to premium cannabis products,” said Joe Bayern, Curaleaf Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to serving these communities and anticipate that demand will quickly surpass projected sales in this market, as cannabis continues to gain acceptance for a variety of health and wellness needs.”
All locations will prominently display Curaleaf’s signature teal logo, and as part of the interior design, each store will feature hyper-local cityscape murals that capture each unique location, further enhancing the experience and connection to the community. The staff at each retail location remains committed to delivering unparalleled service and creating an inclusive experience that encourages exploration and education with a personalized approach.
