(CSE: FFNT) (OTCQX: FFNTF) (“4Front” or the “Company”) continues to focus its efforts in the Illinois market and is pleased to announce that it will open its second Mission Dispensary in Calumet City, IL on December 15th.

The doors will open to the public at large at 10 am.

It is important for us to demonstrate that we are fully committed to being a contributing member of the community, adding to economic development during a difficult time,” said 4Front and Mission President Kris Krane. “This expansion into Calumet City was a natural next step as we aim to provide access to cannabis products. We are excited to launch here and look forward to becoming a staple in the community and meeting the needs of our customers.”
The grand opening ceremony at Mission Calumet City will be held on Tuesday December 15th at 9 a.m. CT featuring community members and local officials.
