The dispensary, which was originally licensed in January 2019, will continue to operate as Good Day Farm on Rodney Parham until the new location opens.

The new location on Chenal is in the same shopping center as the Purple Cow restaurant, a diner popular with families. Gray said he didn’t believe there were any concerns about locating
