Cresco Labs Opens First Chicago Dispensary

Locally-based Cresco Labs has opened Sunnyside River North, which the company says is the first adult-use cannabis dispensary in Chicago under the state’s recently enacted legislation. Located at 436 N. Clark St. in River North, Sunnyside River North is one of seven Sunnyside-branded dispensaries in Illinois; three more are planned.

CEO Charlie Bachtell said the new dispensary offers “an example of what normalized and professionalized cannabis looks like with a location in a traditional business district, a local and diverse operating team and a tremendous amount of community input and support.”

Cresco has implemented procedures system-wide to eliminate wait lines, crowding and social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the River North location is launching with online orders only. The company has three of only 21 cultivation licenses in Illinois, and a total cultivation space of 215,000 square feet across all three of its facilities.
