When TerraVida was unable to establish a dispensary in Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill, it looked west to the suburbs for its new potential home.
CHESTNUT HILL-MT. AIRY, PHILADELPHIA – TerraVida Holistic Centers was eyeing locations in Philadelphia’s Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill neighborhoods to set up a medical marijuana dispensary. When zoning issues, political opposition, and community push back forced TerraVida to look elsewhere in the area, Malvern was the focus of their search.
Philly.com reports the company is moving ahead with a dispensary in Malvern.
The location is at 249 Planebrook Road, Malvern.
TerraVida opted to ask the state’s permission to relocate to the Chester County suburb rather than fight the issues it faced in the Philadelphia neighborhoods.
Officials scrapped plans to set up in Chestnut Hill or Mt. Airy back in September.
The facility, along with TerraVida’s Abington and Sellersville locations, are set to open in 2018.
