The state's 31st medical marijuana dispensary is set to open on Oct 2., in Elkins Park just outside of Philadelphia.
Restore Integrative Wellness Center opened its first cannabis retail outlet in a former welding shop in Fishtown earlier this summer.
In Elkins Park, owner Steve O has refurbished a former marketing business at 8003 Old York Road, refaced the building, updated the interior to create a spa-like environment, and installed a mural by Philadelphia graffiti artist GlossBlack in the new waiting room.
"Our mission is to help patients by being a dependable, trustworthy and cost-competitive source of medical marijuana," said O who has roots in Montgomery County. "It's nice to be on the border of Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties where we'll be able service many different communities at once."
O, a physical therapist and acupuncturist, also operates the Reboot Integrative Wellness Center on Cheltenham Avenue. His pharmacist wife, Anna O, went to Cheltenham High School and serves as Restore's chief executive.
