Ascend Wellness Holdings (AWH) opened a medical-use dispensary in Rochelle Park, New Jersey.
The dispensary is AWH's second in the state, and the first cannabis dispensary in Rochelle Park, according to the company. AWH's other in-state dispensary is located in Montclair, New Jersey.
AWH's dispensary in Rochelle Park will offer patients flower, pre-rolls, ingestibles, topicals and vapes. The dispensary will employ 65 staff and will immediately begin accepting new patients, the company says.
According to AWH, the dispensary is located along one of the most highly-trafficked areas in the U.S. and will serve the state's more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients.
"We are thrilled to open Ascend Rochelle Park and remain committed to meeting patients' needs through an elevated patient journey," says Chris Melillo, chief revenue officer at AWH. "Built to complete the customer purchase process quickly and at scale, our new location will help meet the rising demand for affordable, safe medical cannabis products in New Jersey. We are grateful for the support of Deputy Mayor Gail Artola and Rochelle Park residents in the opening of our dispensary."
