Harvest Health & Recreation, a Phoenix-based medical marijuana company, opened its seventh dispensary in Pennsylvania this week.
Harvest’s new Camp Hill dispensary, located at 3401 Hartzdale Dr., is one of 15 medical dispensaries the company is authorized to open through five different permits that it currently holds through the state Department of Health.
The new location comes almost a year after Harvest opened its Harrisburg facility at 2500 N. 6th St.
Harvest operates dispensaries in Reading, Harrisburg, Johnstown, Scranton and Cranberry Township, Butler County. The company has dispensaries in six different states.
“We are thrilled to open our seventh location in Pennsylvania, one of the fastest-growing medical markets in the U.S.” said Steve White, CEO of Harvest. “We look forward to serving patients and providing quality products at this new location in one of our core markets.”
Harvest still has eight dispensaries that it can open in the state but doesn’t expect to open any more facilities until next year, according to a Harvest spokesperson.
The Camp Hill dispensary is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Opening new dispensaries has been particularly difficult during the pandemic, according to Christine Hersey, a spokesperson for Harvest.
“There are always challenges with opening new locations such as permitting or regulatory approvals or staffing and some of those tasks were made more difficult due to the pandemic but our team has done a great job working through those issues to bring this location and others online,” Hersey said.
