    MedMen West Hollywood is Reportedly Reopening on March 22

    MedMen West Hollywood is reportedly reopening at its original location next week according to signage posted all over its storefront this past Friday. “MedMen will be back next Friday 3/22!!! See you then,” read the signs taped on the front door and its side windows.

    The signs announcing its reopening in WeHo is surprising considering the once leading cannabis dispensary chain recently shuttered the majority of its locations, leaving only two operational sites. According to MJBizDaily, MedMen has ceased operations at all outlets except those in San Diego and near Los Angeles International Airport. Closed locations encompass Santa Ana, Long Beach, and San Francisco, as well as stores in Illinois and Nevada.

    However, according to their website, Yelp page, and Google page, the closure is only temporary. Their website states that they will return shortly.

    The West hollywood location closed its doors after approximately six years in West Hollywood last month. Situated at 8208 Santa Monica Boulevard, the cannabis dispensary is currently vacant, but that could change by next week.

    The WeHo closure followed closely on the heels of significant changes within MedMen Enterprises Inc., including the resignation of its chief executive and executive chairman amid a tumultuous period for the company. Market Watch noted that the stock received a cease-trade order last month, plunging from a $3 billion valuation in 2018 to zero.

    According to a statement from MedMen, Ellen Deutsch Harrison departed as chief executive and board member on Friday, while Michael Serruya, the board’s executive chairman since 2021, stepped down on Wednesday. Richard Ormond was appointed as chief restructuring officer by the board.

    Harrison, previously associated with Acreage Holdings Inc. and Hain Celestial Group Inc., assumed the role in July but departed shortly after. MedMen clarified that the resignations were not due to disagreements on operational matters.

    Founded in 2010 by Adam Bierman and Andrew Modlin, MedMen aimed to reshape society’s perception of cannabis. Its West Hollywood store was among California’s first post-legalization, followed by expansions in New York, Nevada, and Florida. The company’s plans for greenhouse facilities in Nevada and California made headlines, but challenges arose in 2019, including lawsuits and financial scrutiny.

    MJBizDaily reported that MedMen Enterprises initiated corporate layoffs on January 26, with affected departments including accounting and marketing. The extent of the layoffs remains undisclosed.

    Despite the recent shakeup, employees at MedMen Beverly Hills say they are not concerned. They are open for business and anticipate being busy.

    The Woods, across the street, is a much better deal. Around 60% of the cost for the same quality.
