PRINCETON, WV (WVNS)–A local dispensary opened its doors to the public in Mercer County.
Greenlight Dispensary, after a long renovation period is now ready to serve the community. The company celebrated the grand opening at its Princeton location, off of Expert Circle, Monday May 23, 2022.
Director of Retail with the company, Casey Efting said he’s excited to be welcomed to the Mountain State.
“We pretty much focused on new and emerging markets to where we know we can come in and make an instant impact. We have a model that works very well in medical states. We’re able to replicate it and get it up and going and offer a service to the patients with little difficulty,”Efting.
The company found local employees to manage the budding store.
Brittany Elmore is the General Manager and stated that she wants the store as an educational resource for Mercer County.
“Honestly, I feel that it will be a great resource for our opioids and once it goes recreational, I really do feel that will be great too. Just so it will be a safer source than someone on the street,”Elmore stated.
Efting said he can’t wait to see what this will do for the people of Southern West Virginia.
“A ton of people have come up and thanked us for being here. We don’t really know the impact until we get here what it’s going to be but I can tell already with the people that have come up and thanked us and excited for us to be here, it’s going to be a positive impact,”Efting.
Efting said that the company is always available to answer any questions or concerns. They can also direct potential medical marijuana patients to West Virginia Medical Marijuana cards.
Efting stated that they are planning to open additional locations near Beckley and Bluefield, as well as a location near Logan and Stallings.
