FORT PIERCE, FL, July 1, 2020 /CNW/ -PRESS RELEASE- Trulieve Cannabis Corp., a Florida-based medical cannabis company, announced the opening of its 51st location in Florida on July 2. The Fort Pierce location is Trulieve's 53rd location in the United States.
In line with policies that have been adopted in all stores and those recently enacted by the state of Florida, all visitors will be required to wear masks inside the dispensary and only patients and their registered caregivers will be allowed inside at this time.
"Our company's mission is to provide the highest level of cannabis products and customer experience through authentic and reciprocal relationships. As we approach our four-year anniversary this month of opening Florida's first dispensary and making the state's first sale of medical cannabis, it's incredible to look back and be able to say that we've kept our mission at the core of every decision. Being able to celebrate our continued growth and innovation with our dedicated Truliever community is something we always look forward to, and we're excited to broaden access to our catalog of natural, effective medications throughout St. Lucie County," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers.

For its new dispensary opening, Trulieve has its entire catalog of products available for online ordering, with in-store pickup, curbside pickup or home delivery options available. Additionally, to comply with CDC guidelines for social distancing and company-enforced safety guidelines, several measures have been taken to ensure the health and well-being of employees and patients, including modifying the store layout, increasing access to masks and sanitizer throughout the store for staff and visitors, and providing signage to assist with social distancing.
