LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MedMen Enterprises Inc. (“MedMen” or the “Company”) (CSE: MMEN) (OTCQX: MMNFF), is pleased to provide updates regarding its operations in Arizona, West Hollywood, CA and Oak Park, IL as it continues to achieve key milestones in its growth plan.
Arizona: Following the passage and expeditious roll-out of adult-use sales in Arizona, the Company will reclassify its Arizona operations from discontinued to continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2021 where it continues to build on its success at its Scottsdale, AZ retail location and in its wholesale operations through its Mesa, AZ cultivation and manufacturing facility.
West Hollywood, CA: On June 1, 2021, after several years of work in partnership with the City of West Hollywood, the West Hollywood Business License Commission voted unanimously to approve MedMen’s Legacy Medical Business application, which will enable the Company to continue operating its flagship location in West Hollywood both as a medical and adult-use retailer. The Company anticipates receiving its new license in the coming weeks.
