City government took a long look at the project before endorsing its application to the New Jersey Department of Health. The company did a presentation in October 2018 for the City Council.
The local Planning Board approved the dispensary in July 2019. The growing facility was approved in June 2019.
Columbia Care had hoped to open the dispensary no later than in December 2019, originally.
Vineland Mayor Anthony Fanucci welcomed the opening.
“Their operations are best in class and a great addition to the list of industries that call Vineland home,” Fanucci said. “With the grand opening of this facility, the services they provide will have a significant impact for patients suffering from certain medical disorders or debilitating conditions.”
Columbia Care said the dispensary will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays. The hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and customers are asked to make appointments.
