Cresco Labs Inc. (CSE:CL) (OTCQX:CRLBF) (“Cresco Labs” or “the Company”), a vertically integrated multistate operator and the number one U.S. wholesaler of branded cannabis products, today announced the opening of a new Sunnyside medical cannabis dispensary in Tampa, Florida. The store’s address is 1902 N. Dale Mabry Hwy.
Sunnyside Tampa is Cresco Labs’ first store in Tampa. In an effort to normalize the cannabis shopping experience, it is located near Raymond James Stadium and the Tampa International Airport and resides in a large shopping center home to Home Depot, Nordstrom Rack, Target and Ulta. To deliver convenient access for daily commuters, the store is two blocks north of I-275.
“We’re excited to expand Sunnyside’s reach in the Tampa Bay area with our third location and first in the city of Tampa,” said Cris Rivera, Florida Regional President at Cresco Labs. “With over 730,000 medical patients in Florida, the demand for cannabis is rapidly increasing and it’s important that retailers meet patients where they live and work. Sunnyside has become a household name in Florida’s cannabis industry, well-known for its bright, welcoming store environment, patient-focused service, helpful education from wellness advisors, and wide assortment of top-quality branded cannabis products. We are excited to welcome Tampa area patients to our new store.”
Unique to Sunnyside Tampa is a beautifully painted wall mural by international award-winning illustrator, designer and art director, Conrad Gardner. The mural titled, “Welcome to the Sunnyside,” personifies the store’s welcoming atmosphere with elements of the local community’s tropical scenery and hints of cannabis terpenes. It pays homage to the social aspects of cannabis that bring patients together to share their experiences. The mural also celebrates Tampa; the subject’s hair color is a nod to the Tampa Bay Lightning and sunglasses reflect a vision of the city’s heat and soul – Bayshore Boulevard.
Sunnyside Tampa will serve patients with a medical card issued by the state. Patients who shop in-store will have access to a broad selection of branded cannabis products from One Plant, Supply, Good News, Remedi and Sunnyside Chews.
