The first recreational marijuana dispensary in the city is ready to welcome customers.
Queen City Dispensary at 1353 South Ave. is scheduled to open Sept. 7 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4 p.m.
The dispensary, which has adopted the city's nickname, has close ties to Plainfield. One of the company's founders was born and raised in the city. And a member of the dispensary's management was the director of the preschool formerly at the South Avenue site. The dispensary is looking toward creating more than 30 new jobs for the local community.
Queen City Dispensary in Plainfield is scheduled to open on Sept. 7.
The building displays its pride for Plainfield with a Queen City mural featuring city landmarks and luminaries. The mural was painted by Danielle Mastrion, a Brooklyn-born award-winning artist known for murals in Spike Lee films.
The dispensary’s budtenders are specially trained to help customers with any questions and to help guide them to an enjoyable experience whether the customer is an experienced consumer or just “canna-curious.”
