MIAMI and BOSTON, June 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ayr Wellness Inc. (CSE:AYR, OTCQX:AYRWF) ("Ayr" or the "Company"), a leading vertically integrated U.S. multi-state cannabis operator, announced the opening of AYR in Back Bay, the Company's flagship dispensary in Boston.

Located at 827 Boylston St. in the heart of Boston's famous Back Bay neighborhood, directly next to the Apple Store and across from the Prudential Center, the dispensary is expected to benefit from the significant shopping, dining and cultural activities the Back Bay is known for, and will feature a wide range of cannabis brands and products, including Ayr's own Kynd premium flower, Secret Orchard vapes, Wicked edibles, Levia THC infused seltzer, and HAZE concentrates, to address experienced consumers as well as those newer to cannabis.
"We are incredibly excited to open our first adult-use store in Massachusetts, particularly in the enviable location of Boston's Back Bay. We appreciate the warm welcome that we've received by the City of Boston, the Back Bay Association, the Neighborhood Association of Back Bay, and all of the surrounding businesses and community groups. We look forward to further acting on our commitment of being a force for good throughout Back Bay and the local communities," said Jonathan Sandelman, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Ayr. "Our team has cultivated a welcoming environment for all that adds to the integrity of this historic neighborhood and adds new jobs and community investment, and we're excited to welcome each of you to come visit."
"Between the Prudential Center and the surrounding destination bars and restaurants, our Back Bay store is in one of the busiest parts of Boston, and we believe this will be one of the best located dispensaries in the state of Massachusetts."
A Grand Opening Celebration will be held on Thursday, July 14th from 10am – 3pm ET at Back Bay Social, located at 867 Boylston St.
The store's hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 10am – 8pm ET and Sunday from 10am – 6pm ET. Pre-orders are encouraged and can be placed at www.ayrmassachusetts.com.
