AKRON, Ohio, Jan. 18, 2023 — Klutch Cannabis, one of the Midwest’s premier cannabis cultivators and processors, announced the Grand Opening of its first retail dispensary, The Citizen by Klutch, at 5152 Grove Avenue in Lorain, Ohio. Doors will open for the first time at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, January 25, 2023.
After turning in more dispensary applications than any other applicant in the Ohio Board of Pharmacy’s second RFA, the opening of The Citizen in Lorain marks Klutch’s evolution as a 100% Ohio-owned and operated vertically integrated cannabis company. The dispensary will feature the first operational medical cannabis drive-thru in the state, as well as a new, state-of-the-art interactive menu system and a uniquely patient-focused interior design. A second Citizen dispensary will open in Canton, Ohio, in Q1 of 2023.
“Too often, the patient experience at Ohio dispensaries has been dominated by long lines, complicated menus, and a desire among patients to get in and get out as quickly as possible. Our mission was to curate a simplified menu featuring some of the best products in the state and to create an accessible retail environment that focuses, first and foremost, on fostering a meaningful patient experience,” said Founder and CEO Adam Thomarios. “My team and I have spent two years putting this project together, and we can’t wait for patients to finally see what we’ve been working on.”
The store will feature a wide variety of Klutch-branded products, including products exclusive to the dispensary, as well as Kiva Confections’ line of award-winning edibles, which Klutch manufactures under an exclusive license in Ohio. Dispensary menus will also feature a full line of premium products cultivated and manufactured by other state-licensed Cultivators and Processors.
Hours of Operation will be Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM and from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sundays. The drive-thru will be operational shortly after opening week.
