WORCESTER, Mass.–()–International cannabis brand Cookies today announced its long-awaited expansion to the East Coast with the upcoming opening of its newest retail location in Worcester, Massachusetts. The first-ever Cookies storefront on the East Coast will host a unique menu of top-shelf products featuring Cookies’ famed genetics alongside exclusive New England themed clothing.

Massachusetts cannabis consumers will now have access to popular Cookies strains such as Apples and Bananas, Cereal Milk and Gary Payton, as well as regional premium cannabis brands. In addition, there will be exclusive New England themed Cookies SF clothing for purchase. Most of the staff was retained from the previous business, while Cookies has also created 23 new jobs in Worcester.

“I fell in love with Massachusetts a while back at one of my first shows out there. The fire marshall shut down my show because the crowd was smoking, and the venue immediately turned into a hotbox; the energy was so pure and so was the love for cannabis and the whole crowd was chanting {let us smoke}. When we saw that Massachusetts was the first place on the East Coast to legalize cannabis, we had to enter the market. We have great production partners and we look forward to our store opening in Worcester,” said Berner, Co-Founder and CEO of Cookies.

On Saturday, Aug. 28, Cookies will host a grand opening at 10 a.m., complete with high-profile appearances, including Berner and all the top-shelf products from Cookies’ sister brands: Lemonnade, Collins Ave and Grandiflora.

The Cookies location in Worcester is located at 118 Cambridge St. and is open Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
