Green Thumb Industries Inc. GTBIF GTII will open RISE Mankato on April 14. Profits from the first day of sales will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota.
“We are excited to expand our retail footprint to six locations in Minnesota and our first in the southern region of the state,” stated Green Thumb founder and CEO Ben Kovler. “Along with this opening, we are extending our First Day Profits program to another state, allowing us to make an impact in the community with each new store. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Habitat Minnesota, who is doing the important work of bringing about systemic change, so all people have a safe, stable and affordable home.”
Habitat Minnesota brings people together to build homes, community and hope. The statewide support organization provides resources to 25 Minnesota affiliates to advance their work to create and preserve affordable home-ownership. Habitat Minnesota offers a range of programs, including resource development, advocacy, training, and networking.
In addition to RISE Mankato, the company has five other retail locations throughout the state, including: Eagan, Hibbing, St. Cloud, St. Paul and Willmar. Formerly known as LeafLine, each store was re-branded to RISE earlier this month. Profits
