Columbia Care recently opened its new retail brand, Cannabist, in Villa Park.
Cannabist Villa Park is located at 133 Roosevelt Road. The grand opening event, on June 16, featured a local food truck, music, and variety of deals.
Educational sessions titled “Meet the Cultivators” were held throughout the day, introducing Triple Seven and Seed & Strain brands and products to attendees. Customers were also introduced to Forage, Columbia Care’s newly announced, first-of-its-kind cannabis discovery tool designed to streamline and customize the individual shopping experience. Featured on Lightboxes throughout the store, the interactive, web-based platform suggests curated products depending on the user’s desired mood and experience, and syncs with their local dispensary’s inventory and pricing to enable online orders.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better turnout at our grand event this week,” said Andrew Bayly, Illinois Market Director at Columbia Care. “I think between the new look and feel and the innovative technology available to them, our customers really appreciate this enhanced, higher experience that Cannabist offers. We are so grateful to be able to serve our local Villa Park community and share our passion for this plant with our friends and neighbors.”
Columbia Care currently operates 122 facilities, including 92 dispensaries, and 30 cultivation and manufacturing facilities.
