Cresco Labs Announces the Opening of Sunnyside Schaumburg, Creating the Largest Retail and Cultivation Footprint in Illinois
Cresco Labs (CSE:CL) (OTCQX:CRLBF) is one of the largest vertically integrated multistate cannabis operators in the United States. The company announces the opening of Sunnyside Schaumburg, its ninth dispensary in the state, creating the largest retail footprint in Illinois. Sunnyside achieved its highest share ever of the reported $61 million July adult-use retail market. Cresco’s retail share of the adult-use market has almost doubled since January and now far exceeds its prorated share compared to the number of dispensaries it operates. Additionally, the Company’s wholesale business in Illinois continues to grow rapidly with sales to every dispensary across the state and the largest cultivation footprint.
Cresco Labs is one of the largest vertically-integrated multi-state cannabis operators in the United States. Cresco is built to become the most important company in the cannabis industry by combining the most strategic geographic footprint with one of the leading distribution platforms in North America. Employing a consumer-packaged goods approach to cannabis, Cresco’s house of brands is designed to meet the needs of all consumer segments and includes some of the most recognized and trusted national brands including Cresco, Remedi, High Supply, Reserve, Good News and Mindy’s Chef Led Artisanal Edibles created by James Beard Award-winning chef Mindy Segal. Sunnyside, Cresco’s national dispensary brand, is a wellness-focused retailer designed to build trust, education and convenience for both existing and new cannabis consumers. Recognizing that the cannabis industry is poised to become one of the leading job creators in the country, Cresco provides the industry’s first national comprehensive Social Equity and Educational Development (SEED) program designed to ensure that all members of society have the skills, knowledge and opportunity to work in and own businesses in the cannabis industry.
“We continue to grow our share of adult-use retail sales on the back of an excellent retail experience and expanded supply of premium flower,” said Charlie Bachtell, Cresco Labs’ CEO and Co-founder. “We are taking more share both at an individual store level and by opening more stores than any other operator in the state. With Sunnyside* Schaumburg opening today we operate nine dispensaries (eight adult-use) in Illinois, with a license for one more. Our substantial retail share is supported by our expanded cultivation facility, which has driven a consistent supply of premium flower into this capacity-constrained market.”
This new Sunnyside dispensary is adjacent to the Woodfield Mall, the largest shopping mall and heart of one of the densest areas of stores, hotels, and restaurants in Illinois. The Woodfield Mall attracts more than 27 million visitors annually.
With more than 11,500 square feet of space and 20 points of sale, Sunnyside Schaumburg is Cresco’s largest dispensary in Illinois, followed by Sunnyside South Beloit which opened last month, and is the largest location in its nationwide retail portfolio.
Sunnyside Schaumburg is located at 1735 East Golf Road. Store hours are 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM daily, seven days a week. Adult-use customers can place orders online by browsing live inventory through Sunnyside.shop and pick up orders same day.
