Ownership and staff of Confluence Cannabis, located at 104 US-131 in Three Rivers, celebrated its upcoming opening with a ribbon cutting and tour of the facilities on Friday, June 10.
“One year ago today the Three Rivers City Commission adopted a retail cannabis ordinance,” co-owner Mara Kore said in a press release issued on Friday. “We began working on Confluence immediately and are thrilled to be ready for business.
“We’ve enjoyed working with local companies including JMC construction, Great Lakes Technology, Geek Genius, Superior Printing and others. City officials have helped us make the licensing process as smooth as possible. And we’ve been blessed to find a talented and dedicated staff.
“A big thank you to the Three Rivers community for the support you’ve already shown us — we can’t wait to see you all at Confluence.”
Confluence also presented a check to Three Rivers Promise board members in the amount of $3,000 on Friday, in line with a promise Kore made to the Three Rivers City Commission about giving back to the community. The Promise hopes to eventually provide every Three Rivers High School graduate with the full or partial cost of tuition for an approved Michigan college or university or for approved skilled trades training.
According to the dispensary’s website, Confluence’s grand opening is set for Friday, July 8. As of last Friday the company was still waiting on final approval.
