WAKEFIELD, Mass., June 24, 2021 – PRESS RELEASE – Curaleaf Holdings Inc., a leading international provider of consumer products in cannabis, announced the opening of Curaleaf Edgewater Park, the company’s second dispensary in New Jersey and 107th dispensary nationwide.
In addition, Curaleaf announced that its second New Jersey cultivation facility, located in Winslow, completed its first harvest and is now fully operational. The new site has tripled the company’s cultivation capabilities to serve both the existing New Jersey medical market and the forthcoming adult-use market.
“We are thrilled to grow alongside New Jersey’s flourishing medical community and expand access to best-in-class cannabis products to patients in Edgewater Park,” Curaleaf CEO Joe Bayern said. “We continue to work closely with state leadership and regulators to create a successful and sustainable adult-use market, and our expansion positions us to meet the market’s increasing needs while creating hundreds of new jobs in the state.”
Curaleaf Edgewater Park is a 7,640-square-foot dispensary conveniently located off the Burlington Pike at 4237 Route 130 South and is open to all patients with a valid medical card. Curaleaf has been serving New Jersey’s medical community since the opening of its Bellmawr dispensary in 2015, and the company anticipates opening a third dispensary in Central New Jersey later this summer. Patients will have expanded access to Curaleaf’s diverse line of award-winning product offerings including branded flower, vapes and ingestible products.
On June 25, Curaleaf will hold an opening day ceremony featuring a ribbon cutting, swag bags for the first 500 patients, and raffles for a store credit and gift basket. New patients will have access to an exclusive 20% discount on first purchases through July 6. In addition, Curaleaf Edgewater Park is making a $5,000 contribution to Ladies in Transit Holistic Community Development Corporation, which provides families and individuals with programs and services to transition from hardship to economic stability.
“We are committed to both serving our patients and being a good member of our local communities,” Curaleaf Northeast Regional President Patrik Jonsson said. “We’re proud to open our new location in Edgewater, and we look forward to making an impact in the community through Curaleaf's Rooted in Good program.”
