ANN ARBOR – A new cannabis dispensary has opened nestled between Water Hill and Kerrytown at 811 N. Main St. in Ann Arbor.
New Standard Ann Arbor is the eighth provisioning center to open in Michigan under the New Standard name — a cannabis startup founded in 2020.
The store opened on Friday and will be offering specials and promotions during opening weekend. According to a release, on Saturday, customers who show their Michigan football ticket will receive a Maize & Blue New Standard T-shirt and a free pre-roll, while supplies last. Specials and discounts will continue through Labor day.
As part of opening weekend, the shop will also be holding drawings for gift cards from local businesses. For every purchase made Sept. 3-6, guests will receive one raffle ticket to enter the drawing to win gift cards from The Gandy Dancer, BTB Burrito, Zingerman’s, Today Clothing, Detroit Cookie Co. and more.
“New Standard has had an incredible year of expanding retail operations across the state of Michigan,” New Standard CEO and co-founder Howard Luckoff said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be opening our eighth Michigan location in Ann Arbor.
“We’ve met many of our new neighbors as well as people from across the globe as they return for games and events in this amazing community.”
