TerrAscend is holding a job fair on Friday at the Maplewood library to staff their upcoming dispensary at 1865 Springfield Avenue in town.
Town Committeeman Victor De Luca promoted the job fair on social media. DeLuca said it would be Friday at the Hilton branch of the Maplewood Library from 11-3.

A Receptionist will provide friendly customer service and front desk services while the senior staffers. They are also looking for unarmed security guards to ensure safety. The jobs are posted on Indeed.
Maplewood is a progressive, diverse community, so it makes sense a dispensary would open there.
TerrAscend currently operates the Apothecarium in Phillipsburg, NJ, on the Delaware River. They recently opened their indoor grow facility in January, which should provide quality cannabis to their upcoming Maplewood dispensary.
More dispensaries opening would be welcoming news.
A few other dispensaries are slated to open later this year. Stay tuned to learn more!
