City to Negotiate with 4 More Marijuana Shops

 by Patrick SargentFebruary 15, 2019

WORCESTER - The City of Worcester will enter into negotiations with four more marijuana retail stores -- bringing the total number of retail stores in the city to 13.

By state law, the City is required to allow for 15 marijuana retail establishments.

The four new marijuana retail establishments are:

  • New Dia, LLC - 118 Cambridge Street
  • Cultivate Holdings, LLC -  1023 Southbridge Street
  • Munro Associates - 342 West Boylston Street
  • Sun Mass II, LLC - 56 Millbrook Street

The 13 proposed retail establishments are in addition to five approved manufacturing businesses -- which, at full operation are estimated to create 265 jobs in Worcester. Manufacturing businesses are not open to the public and have limited signage and visibility.

Each potential new operator must still receive approval from the Cannabis Control Commission, the Planning Board and the License Commission.

To date, 46 applicants applied through the City of Worcester Request for Interest (or had received prior approval due to their medical marijuana status) for a variety of cannabis-related licenses.

The City must still issue an additional two retail licenses. Existing applicants remain under consideration. No new applications for a retail establishment are currently being accepted, however applications for manufacturing businesses are being accepted on a rolling basis.
