MedCo medical cannabis store at 141 Main St., Lewiston Christopher Wheelock/Sun Journal

LEWISTON — Permits have been acquired and renovations are underway at 739 Main St. for the latest MedCo cannabis shop.

Alex McMahan, CEO of The Healing Community MEDCo, said this will be the company’s second recreational store. It has two medical cannabis stores in Lewiston, one in Gardiner and a recreational store at Sunday River in Newry.

The new shop is next to MedCo’s other one at 741 Main St. and is expected to be open in three to four months. McMahan hopes that will be around the time the Maine Legislature finalizes rules for the LD 1827, “An Act To Permit Limited Delivery of Adult Use Marijuana,” which became law April 26 without the governor’s signature. McMahan said he plans to add delivery for the new recreational store, when the rules are put in place.

Store hours will be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, and more employees will be hired closer to opening, he said.
