St Louis-based CBD Kratom, the largest privately owned cannabis and kratom retail chain in the U.S., opened its fifth New York City store with a soft store opening today, Dec. 3.
The new store is situated at 2039-B Broadway, in the city’s Upper West Side, what is considered to be one of New York City’s best neighborhoods. An official grand opening event is set for Monday, Dec. 10.
“The iconic Upper West Side is an ideal neighborhood for us as we continue our expansion in New York City,” said CBD Kratom Director of Retail Growth and Development Ocean Cohen. “Adding THC-O to our product line along with a store in the Upper West Side allows us to connect with even more people looking for wellness solutions. The neighborhood has a relaxed vibe and customers will find the same welcoming atmosphere inside our store.”
CBD Kratom entered the New York market on April 20, of this year – also known as 4/20, the official holiday of the cannabis industry. The company has quickly added another four NYC stores since:
- Chelsea on April 20
- Lenox Hill in the Upper East Side on May 20
- Flatiron in the Flatiron District on Oct. 1
- Midtown Times Square on Nov. 4
- Upper West Side on Dec. 3
With five locations already in place, CBD Kratom’s massive New York City expansion is still far from over with plans to open three more stores in SoHo, the Financial District and the Upper East Side in early 2022.
Since opening its first store in 2016, CBD Kratom has expanded significantly throughout the U.S. with 47 locations throughout six major cities: Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New York City, Philadelphia and St. Louis. The company offers more than 600 cannabis products including CBD, THC-O, CBG, other cannabinoids, as well as more than 50 strains of pure kratom and kratom specialty products.
“Growing our New York City footprint is critical and the Upper West Side provides us with a significant boost in reach and visibility,” Cohen said. “It is a diverse neighborhood that attracts a high volume of people and we look forward to introducing ourselves and our products to them. At our stores, we make sure everyone finds their fit so they can sleep well, wake well and live well.”
Known for its tailored customer service, CBD Kratom’s extensively trained staff works with customers to find the right products to fit their specific needs. CBD Kratom features an extensive product selection that includes edibles, topical creams, oils, skin care and pet treats.
