GrowGeneration Corp. of Denver, the largest chain of specialty hydroponic and organic garden centers in the United States, has opened its newest store in Mount Holly, marking its entry into the New Jersey market. The new store is 7,700 square feet and will include vertical farming demonstrations and educational support for growers to build and maintain state-of-the-art grow operations to maximize their yields.
Darren Lampert, co-founder and chief executive officer of GrowGen commented, “We are excited to open our first store in New Jersey and increase our reach and operations into a fast-growing and strategically important market. We expect New Jersey to be highly active in the coming years, with a strong medical patient base, over 800 conditional licenses that have been issued, microenterprise and social equity licenses, as well as a pending law to allow for home cultivation.”
Lampert continued, “As we expand our footprint in the Northeastern United States, we are excited to continue our efforts in cooperation with Harvest 360 to support our national program with education and training for Social Equity License holders. The program focuses on delivering top-notch support and solutions to operators and their communities. To date, we have 30 holders of micro licenses who are active in the program within the New York and New Jersey markets.”
