"We are thrilled to be opening the first adult-use store in Chicago under the state's new legislation and to provide an example of what normalized and professionalized cannabis looks like with a location in a traditional business district, a local and diverse operating team and a tremendous amount of community input and support," said Charlie Bachtell, Cresco Labs' CEO and Co-founder. "We recruited and trained our team of wellness advisors from all over Chicagoland and look forward to catering to the wellness needs of the downtown community following the responsible shopping methods we developed in conjunction with state regulators."

Once customers receive a text notification that their order is ready, they can check-in at the Guest Experience Center at 22 W. Hubbard to be entered into the virtual pickup queue. Regular store hours are 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM daily, seven days a week.

Cresco has the largest footprint in Illinois with three of only 21 cultivation licenses and a total cultivation space1 of 215,000 square feet across all three of its facilities. The Company currently distributes its wholesale products to every dispensary in the state, and its Illinois retail presence includes seven Sunnyside* dispensaries, with three additional locations planned in strategic locations throughout the state.
