Arizona is about to get its first recreational marijuana dispensary that’ll be open 24 hours a day.
On Oct 13, Mint Cannabis will join a handful of dispensaries in the country that have the ability to offer 24-hour service to those 21 and older.
“The Mint is well known for innovation and pushing the envelope in the marijuana industry to enhance the customer and patient experience,” said Eivan Shahara, Co-Founder and CEO of Brightroot, Inc., parent company of Mint Cannabis. “Pursuing approvals for operational changes like this one brings the Mint closer to other essential service operators that provide care options, like pharmacies. It allows us to better serve our most in-need individuals during overnight hours, and customers who have different work shifts.”
Around-the-clock operations will officially launch on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Mint’s Guadalupe dispensary on the southwest corner of S. Priest Drive and W. Baseline Road (5210 S. Priest Drive). The Mint will operate
Thursday, Oct. 13 also happens to be National M&M Day, so the Mint’s cannabis chefs plan to celebrate all day long and into the weekend by selling infused M&M treats in the Mint Café, the cannabis kitchen located inside the Mint’s flagship recreational dispensary location. They plan to feature everything from cupcakes and cheesecakes to cookies and trail mixes that incorporate the popular chocolate candy.
24-hours a day at this location on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays as a starting point and may expand the extended hours to additional days of the week based on demand.
According to the Mint’s leadership team, when the sun goes down on Oct. 13, so will the prices. On the first day that the Mint will operate with extended hours, customers and patients will find a live deejay, a variety of “Midnight Madness” buy-one-get-one deals, and free prizes and giveaways all night long.
Everyone 21 and older who shops at this dispensary location on Oct. 13 will receive 25% off the purchases they make in the entire store. The first 100 people over the age of 21 who shop at this location after 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 13 will receive a medicated goodie bag with product and swag inside, and everyone 21 and older who visits the Guadalupe dispensary between midnight to 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 14 will receive a free pre-roll.
To ensure the utmost safety of its customers, patients and employees, the Mint already has a very well-lit parking lot at this dispensary location, along with hundreds of security cameras and a team of security guards who work around the clock, 24-7, to ensure safety.
