MIAMI, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRESS RELEASE -- Ayr Wellness Inc., a vertically integrated U.S. multi-state cannabis operator (MSO), today announced the opening of its 47th Florida dispensary, located in Clermont, a western suburb of Orlando.
The new dispensary spans 4,000 square feet of retail space and is located near Clermont Historical Village. The store features Ayr’s full line of concentrates, edibles, gummies, vapes and a selection of high-quality flower, including newly launched Kynd whole flower offerings and Walking STiX pre-rolls.
“We continue to open stores in Florida at a rapid pace, with today’s opening marking 47 locations across the state,” said Jonathan Sandelman, founder, chairman and CEO of Ayr. “The expansion of our Florida footprint, combined with the continued rollout of our national brands like Kynd, STiX and Entourage, positions us well to continue to capture market share throughout the Sunshine State.”
In February 2021, Ayr purchased Florida-based Liberty Health Sciences, which included 31 dispensaries across the state. Since then, the company has opened 16 additional locations–bringing the current total to 47 stores.
In 2021, Ayr relocated its U.S. headquarters from New York City to Miami, underscoring the company’s commitment to the region.
