National Dispensary Operator Celebrates the Grand Opening its First Retail Location in the Show-Me State on Saturday, Aug. 26, Gives Back to O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry
Mint Cannabis – a national cannabis operator known for its product selection, great deals, customer service, innovation, and commitment to giving back to the community – will celebrate the grand opening of its first Missouri dispensary on Saturday, Aug. 26, at 150 Mid Rivers Mall Circle in St. Peters.
The brand-new, 5,000-square-foot retail dispensary is located just outside of Mid Rivers Mall, on the southeast corner of I-70 and Mid Rivers Mall Drive. Offering more than 2,500 products and 20 registers to ensure there is little-to-no wait time, the dispensary is open seven days a week, from 8 am to 9 pm, to serve medical and recreational customers ages 21 and older. The dispensary is also able to accept both cash and debit cards as forms of payment.
From now until Aug. 25, the Mint will donate $1 from every pre-roll sold at its St. Peters, Mo. dispensary to O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry, which helps to supplement more than 25,000 meals a month for families in need in St. Charles County. Additionally, Missouri customers can bring in a nonperishable food item to the Mint’s dispensary in St. Peters to donate to the food pantry.
On Saturday, Aug. 26, the dispensary will celebrate its grand opening with more than 10 vendors, live music, and a free car show in the dispensary parking lot. Those who make a purchase at the dispensary on its grand opening day will have the opportunity to receive a free Mint shirt and free uninfused food and drinks. The first 200 people who make a purchase will receive a free swag bag. The Mint will also offer buy-one-get-one deals on select items all day long. Eivan Shahara, CEO of Mint Cannabis, will lead a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4:20 pm, when he will present a check for a minimum of $1,500 (and possibly more, based on pre-roll sales) to O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry.
“The Mint has a national reputation for providing access to the widest selection of high-quality medicinal cannabis products to patients who are seeking relief from a variety of ailments and illnesses, from chronic pain and PTSD to cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease,” said Shahara. “Opening a cannabis dispensary in Missouri allows us to share our best practices by delivering an elevated experience, complete with a fantastic product selection, great deals, and little-to-no wait times.”
In addition to delivering an unparalleled dispensary experience, the Mint brand is also well known for its community-minded philosophy and giving back to those in need within the markets it serves. In Missouri, Shahara anticipates that the Mint will incorporate education sessions for patients, as well as deals and discounts to Seniors, Veterans and others who need cannabis to cope with life-altering illnesses and conditions.
The new location in St. Peters includes a robust educational area where patients can learn more about cannabis and receive health-related information. From time to time, as permitted by state regulations, the dispensary will also host guest speakers familiar with the cannabis industry to educate guests ages 21 and older.
The Mint carries thousands of quality cannabis products, including flower, edibles, and concentrates. Additionally, those who need more help navigating the wide variety of medicinal cannabis options will have access to the expertise of 15-20 knowledgeable, on-site budtenders. The dispensary employs 30 people in a wide variety of positions and anticipates hiring an additional 30 people.
