Cannabis retail stores are opening at a strong pace throughout the US. Real estate site selection is an important ingredient to having a successful store. However, before you can select real estate deciding which city to open a retail store is even more important. A bad operator can be in a good city and still find great profits, yet not the other way around.
There are currently just under 10,000 cannabis retail outlets through the USA. So far in 2022 a little over 1,000 new retail stores have opened doors, with another 800 or so pending stores right behind them.
These maps were created to assist retail operators in selecting which cities to expand into. Understanding which cities are surrounded by opt out cities means potential stores will open with more exposure to larger population bases. And even better than that is finding cities nearby state borders that are next to a state that won’t allow for cannabis retail for many years. We’ve heard many stores are doing tens of millions in revenues that open nearby the right state borders.
