KIRKLAND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GrowLife, Inc. (OTCQB: PHOT), one of the nation’s most recognized indoor cultivation product and service providers, today announced plans to hold a ribbon cutting ceremony in Portland, Maine for its newest retail location named GrowLife Hydroponics. This storefront carries GrowLife’s line of industry-leading hydroponics and soil, along with thousands of other brands and products that cater to cultivators of all sizes. GrowLife Hydroponics also serves as the company’s largest fulfillment center for orders placed on its e-commerce platform.
The ribbon cutting will take place Tuesday, July 31st at 11 a.m. EST at 1110 Brighton Ave. Expected speakers at the event include GrowLife Hydroponics President Joe Barnes. Members from the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce are also expected to be in attendance.
Maine, which became the eighth state to legalize cannabis for adult use in 2016, is expected to roll out its adult use program in 2019. Meanwhile, Maine lawmakers overturned earlier this month Gov. Paul LePage’s veto to pass a sweeping medical cannabis reform bill that will expand the state’s existing medical cannabis program. The Maine House and Senate voted to override the governor’s veto and adopt legislation that will permit caregivers to expand their business operations, among other changes. GrowLife’s all-in-one home cultivation system called GrowLife Cube Pro is designed to make plant cultivation attainable for consumers of all backgrounds and skillsets and is an ideal home grow package for caregivers in the state.
The company selected its current location for the relaunch of its store because of its proximity to big box retailers to improve accessibility to consumers.
“The timing could not be better for the opening of a retail storefront for GrowLife Hydroponics in Portland, Maine,” said GrowLife CEO Marco Hegyi. “Expanding our physical presence in the Northeast is a strategic move as legislation in the region continues to evolve. As our consumer division continues to experience increased momentum throughout North America, the addition of this store to our distribution network and robust e-commerce platform will allow us to better service both our ‘home grow’ and commercial clients.”
This retail store will also sell GrowLife’s full line of products designed and manufactured by the company’s product development division, GrowLife Innovations (“Innovations”). Innovations was created to provide solutions for production inefficiencies through the development of proprietary “industry-changing” products.
