It used to be a pre-school, sitting next door to a bustling Dairy Queen in one of the busiest streets in the city. Now the converted building, featuring a beautiful mural outside and an artful esthetic indoors, houses the first independent legal cannabis store to open in Union County.
Queen City Dispensary, which takes its moniker from the city operates in, Plainfield, kicked off sales with a grand opening celebration on Sept. 7.
Owners Sarah Stretchberry and Jennifer Brandt said that they were overjoyed they’re finally opened.
“I was born and raised in Plainfield and in towns right next door. It’s a wonder that we have finally reached this point where a legal weed shop is in the city. We are excited to be the first,” said Brandt.
City administration, community members and cannabis industry insiders shared in the celebration with street vendor food and entertainment in the parking lot of the new adult-use cannabis dispensary, located 1353 South Ave. They cut the ribbon and officially opened doors at 4:20 p.m., a nod to the famous weed holiday
