FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THRIVE CANNABIS MARKETPLACE TO OPEN FOURTH NEVADA DISPENSARY IN RENO
The Newest Store Makes THRIVE the Largest Cannabis Retailer in Nevada
RENO, NEVADA (October 2019) – THRIVE Cannabis Marketplace announces it will open its fourth Nevada dispensary in Reno in early November. With the new flagship Northern Nevada location, THRIVE officially becomes the largest retailer in the state. The company has hired its opening staff and has begun training its new team members. At full capacity, THRIVE will employ approximately 30 people and occupy the former Butcher Boy Meat & Deli location at 7300 South Virginia Street. THRIVE has already performed its State Inspection and is waiting for the Reno City Council to meet on Oct. 23, where it is anticipated that THRIVE will receive approval of its business license for the new dispensary with State final approvals to follow.
“We look forward to serving Reno with our first Northern Nevada location,” said Mitch Britten, founder and chief executive officer, THRIVE. “Our commitment to providing the highest-quality experience for each customer is matched by our desire to be a good neighbor and make a positive impact on the community.”
In 2015, Britten was drawn to Nevada by its rigorous regulatory structure. He and his family moved to the state after determining its intense and all-inclusive regulatory environment could further legitimize the medical cannabis industry, as well as what was then the future development of the recreational cannabis industry. THRIVE Cannabis Marketplace opened its first Nevada dispensary for medical patients in 2016 in North Las Vegas, and a second location later that year in Downtown Las Vegas. Its third location, just west of the Las Vegas Strip opened in September 2019.
Under Britten’s leadership, THRIVE remains committed to understanding and facilitating the needs of its customers while honoring the laws governing cannabis. While providing the widest variety and highest-quality cannabis, THRIVE aims to set a positive example in the cannabis industry by eliminating negative stigmas and inaccurate stereotypes surrounding cannabis consumption. Supporting charities, culture and the local economy are all important to Britten and the entire THRIVE team, who strive to create an upbeat atmosphere based on professionalism, compassion and security.
