PHOENIX – 4Front Ventures Corp. (CSE: FFNT) (OTCQX: FFNTF) (“4Front” or the “Company”) continues to focus its efforts in the Illinois market and is pleased to announce that its Mission dispensary located in Chicago’s South Chicago neighborhood will re-open to patients and customers on July 31, 2020. The store was temporarily closed on May 31st as the result of looting in the wake of the recent protests and unrest in Chicago.
Previously known as Mission South Shore, the dispensary will be renamed Mission South Chicago upon reopening as a dedication to the local community that has embraced and supported the retail location since its opening as a medical dispensary in 2017. Mission South Chicago, located at 8554 S. Commercial Ave., is the only cannabis retail store on the city’s Southeast Side.
“The reopening of Mission is not only a pivotal moment for our company but also the South Chicago community which has been incredibly generous in their support during this rebuilding process. South Chicago has long been overlooked and underserved and it was important for us to demonstrate that we are fully committed to being a contributing member of the community, and a part of the ongoing economic development in the neighborhood,” said 4Front and Mission President Kris Krane. “It is a testament to the drive and dedication of our staff that we are able to reopen our doors so quickly. We are grateful to serve this community and will not be deterred as we push forward in our mission to build a unique and inspiring place for our neighbors as the headquarters for all things cannabis.”
As part of the reopening, Mission South Chicago will be holding a rededication rally at the store beginning on Friday July
