NEWTON, MA — Ascend Newton, the city’s third cannabis dispensary, celebrated the grand opening of its Washington Street store on Sunday, December 6.
“The opening of Ascend Newton represents an opportunity help to better serve customers in Newton and other Boson suburbs by way of offering best-selling products and a best-in-class shopping experience,” said Andrea Cabral, CEO of Ascend Massachusetts, in a statement. “We are proud to have hired a diverse local staff and look forward to building relationships and supporting the Newton community.”
Located in an approximately 5,000-square-foot space, the store will be one of the first AWH retail locations to offer delivery services within a 25-mile radius and anticipates it will create about 50 jobs for the Newton community.
