As one of only three operators licensed to dispense in the southern region of New Jersey, Columbia Care's Vineland facility will allow the Company to address a large, underserved population in the state. The dispensary will be supported by the Company's 50,000 sq. ft. cultivation and manufacturing facility, which will produce its first harvest next month, supplying both the dispensary as well as Columbia Care's wholesale operations in the state. Adhering to both local and state guidelines for social distancing, patients will have access to curbside and express pickup options as well as Columbia Care's innovative Virtual.Care portal, providing the industry's most complete virtual shopping experience.
"Our opening in New Jersey marks a significant turning point and we're excited to bring our industry-leading services and exceptional team to a new market, especially at a time when patients need them most," said Nicholas Vita, chief executive officer of Columbia Care. "We appreciate the tremendous support we have received from the local and state governments, and remain committed to creating new jobs, increasing access to high-quality cannabis products, and improving the lives of New Jersey's residents. With voters expected to pass the adult use ballot measure later this year, our ability to open two additional dispensaries will allow Columbia Care to be the market leader in New Jersey."
