4Front Ventures constructing new dispensary in Calumet City
The construction at the new Mission Calumet City dispensary started in September, and it is expected to serve medicinal and adult-use customers. It is located at 1330 Torrence Avenue, and it features ample parking with around 3,00 sq. ft. of finished retail space and back-office space. It also has an oversized vault for inventory storage with an advanced security system.
Gabe Mendoza, the Operations for Mission VP, said that since adults’ implementation uses cannabis, the Illinois market has been exceptional. As a result, the company is delighted to expand its operations in the state to serve patients and customers depending on Mission. Mendoza said that, like the Mission South Chicago dispensary, the Mission Calumet City dispensary will be committed to becoming an important Calumet City community member. It will also be part of the region’s ongoing economic revitalization through the provision of a safe and good location for cannabis products.
