An eastern Henrico storefront is trading bottles of booze for marijuana buds.

The Cannabist Co., which operates as the Richmond region’s lone legal medical cannabis provider, is planning to open a marijuana dispensary in the Laburnum Park Shopping Center next year, a company spokeswoman confirmed on Tuesday.

The company has leased the D suite of 4320 S. Laburnum Ave. for its new shop, a 5,500-square-foot space formerly occupied by an ABC store. The shopping center is across from White Oak Village.

Taylor Long Properties recently announced the lease. Robert Marshall and Ellen Long represented the landlord in the deal.

Major tenants in the center include Gold’s Gym and Dollar Tree. Among the other tenants are Cookout, Taco Bell and an Atlantic Union Bank branch. The majority of the center is owned by Vienna-based Westover Apartments LLC, which acquired its portion of the center in 2017.
