JARS Cannabis, a leading cannabis retailer, has embarked on a significant expansion with the construction of a new retail outlet on Gratiot Avenue near 23 Mile Road. This venture follows their distinction of securing Chesterfield Township's first-ever recreational cannabis license, the company based in Troy disclosed on Wednesday.

Though the chosen site was previously vacant, construction is already underway. A representative from the dispensary revealed that the grand opening is targeted for the end of 2023.

Raymond Abro, the COO of the dispensary, extended his gratitude towards the township's administrative team, notably Supervisor Brad Kersten, Clerk Cindy Berry, and other department heads. Their commendable efforts played a pivotal role during the application and approval stages. "Under the forward-thinking guidance of Supervisor Kersten, Chesterfield has emerged as a progressive community, welcoming our business. We're thrilled to embark on this new journey alongside the community," Abro expressed. He further highlighted the undeniable role of Clerk Berry's office, emphasizing her exemplary leadership and her team's unwavering commitment.

JARS Cannabis views this licensing achievement as a testament to their dedication to supplying superior cannabis products while promoting responsible consumption within the community. As per a company press release, the key aspects of this expansion include:

  • Community Collaboration: JARS emphasizes fostering strong ties with the local community, promoting the positive impact of recreational cannabis, endorsing responsible use, and creating job prospects.
  • Job Creation: The Chesterfield outlet is expected to significantly boost employment opportunities, thus contributing to the economic growth of the region.
  • Product Excellence: Upholding its reputation, JARS will continue its range of top-notch cannabis offerings, from deli-style flower and pre-rolls to vapes, concentrates, and edibles, catering to varied customer needs.
  • Educational Initiatives: A pivotal part of JARS' mission is to inform the public about responsible cannabis use, debunk misconceptions, and advocate for safe consumption.

Kersten clarified that Chesterfield Township hasn't established any caps on the number of licenses they can distribute. Potential cannabis retailers simply have to align with the township's zoning regulations.

Established in 2020, JARS Cannabis boasts of a vast network, including 17 outlets across Michigan; and a total of 35 outlets spanning the U.S., with branches in states like Arizona and Colorado.
