Marlborough recreational marijuana store to open Sunday
Massachusetts’ 20th recreational marijuana store will open its doors this weekend.
Garden Remedies will open its Marlborough store on Sunday after receiving its “commence operations” notice from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission this week.
The Marlborough location is Garden Remedies’ second recreational store and third overall dispensary. The company began recreational sales at its Newton store last month and also operates a medical dispensary in Melrose.
The company also has plans to sell marijuana for medical patients, though the Marlborough location has not yet received its approval as a registered medical dispensary.
Compared to its Newton store, Garden Remedies in Marlborough is three times the size and has ample parking space, said Jeffrey Herold, the company’s chief operating officer. The Marlborough store is in a shopping plaza, so it shares about 170 spots with other retail stores and restaurants, including a brewery.
“It’s going to allow us for a lot more flexibility,” Herold said about the size of the store.
Also unlike Newton, Garden Remedies will not require appointments at its Marlborough location.
Here’s what you need to know if you plan to shop at Garden Remedies in Marlborough.
