Jushi Holdings Inc. (“Jushi” or the “Company”) (CSE: JUSH) (OTCQX: JUSHF), a vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis operator, announced it is expanding its retail footprint in California with the opening of its 32nd retail location nationally and third dispensary in the Golden State: BEYOND / HELLO™ Grover Beach. The new store, which is located between Ocean and Pismo Beach at 923 Huber Street, is the fourth and final retail dispensary permitted in the city of Grover Beach.
BEYOND / HELLO™ Grover Beach will officially open and start serving consumers and medical marijuana patients on Friday, May 13th at 10:00 a.m. Along with providing an unparalleled customer-centric retail experience, the store features options for online ordering through beyond-hello.com as well as nine point-of-sale systems, including two express checkouts and 27 on-site parking spots.
“With an annual tourist population of approximately 2.2 million and many of the surrounding municipalities prohibiting retail cannabis dispensaries from operating, Grover Beach presents a key market opportunity for Jushi,” said Jushi Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and Founder Jim Cacioppo. “We are excited to expand access to this thriving beach town and region and look forward to strategically expanding our footprint in California with the opening of an additional retail location in Culver City.”
BEYOND / HELLO™ Grover Beach will carry top cannabis brands and products, including flower, concentrates, vaporization products, tinctures, edibles, topicals, capsules, pills and various ancillary products such as approved rigs, batteries, merchandise and other devices. The retail location provides Californians with an efficient, accessible and safe experience that goes beyond the traditional cannabis retail environment. As part of the Company’s commitment to exceeding customer expectations, experienced well-trained staff will also be on-site to help dispense products, answer questions and provide exceptional service. In addition, BEYOND / HELLO™ Grover Beach is handicap accessible, LGBTQIA+ friendly and offers a standing 10% discount to anyone 65 years or older, as well as veterans and active military personnel with identification.
Jushi owns 78% of the equity of the Grover Beach, California retail license and has the option to acquire the remaining equity in the future.
