CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — There is a new marijuana dispensary open in Champaign.
NuEra employees cut the ribbon to celebrate the city’s first recreational use pot shop; meaning it is not for medical customers.
It is on Green Street right next to Kams Bar in Campustown. There were a handful of customers right when the doors opened. It will be open from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sunday – Wednesday and 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Thursday – Saturday.
“We’re trying to meet the demand in a safe, compliant and excellent way here in Illinois,” said NuEra Marketing Director Jonah Rapino.
NuEra also has an Urbana location. That one is for both recreational and medical customers.
