Holistic Industries, a large, private multistate operator in cannabis, has announced the opening of Liberty Madison Heights, Michigan’s new cannabis headquarters and superstore. A grand opening is planned for June 12.
The 64,000-square-foot vertically integrated flagship facility, believed to be the largest of its kind in southeast Michigan, includes a provisioning center, along with cultivation and processing activities.
Located at 29600 Stephenson Highway in Madison Heights (north of 12 Mile Road), Holistic Industries transformed the vacant Fairlanes Bowl and added 150 new jobs. The cost of the project was not disclosed.
As one of the state’s only provisioning centers to test for terpenes in products, Liberty features dedicated space for cannabis education including a terpene bar and greenhouse structure for brand pop-ups, demonstrations, and classes. With one of the largest selections of products available in the state, Liberty will carry more than 60 brands at the time of opening.
Holistic has Liberty provisioning centers in Detroit and Ann Arbor.
“We are excited to be part of the Madison Heights community and to be welcomed by everyone from the Mayor to the Chamber of Commerce and other key stakeholders in the community,” says Josh Genderson, CEO of Holistic Industries. “We will continue to fund projects and initiatives that are important to the city and its residents, because what is important to Madison Heights is important to us as we deliver on our mission to be the best place to work, shop and invest in cannabis.”
Liberty Madison Heights is hosting a ‘Life is Better Block Party’ on Saturday, June 12 from noon-6 p.m. to celebrate the grand opening and thank the community for their support with live music, free food trucks, local craft vendors, and more. In partnership with Madison Heights Food Pantry, Liberty will host a food drive at the event, and throughout the month of June, offering a discount on products in exchange for donating non-perishable food items.
“Madison Heights continues our economic development by welcoming companies that are committed to making a positive impact in our community,” says Roslyn Grafstein, Mayor of Madison Heights. “From tree planning and mural painting in our parks to forming a community advisory board and impact fund, Holistic Industries continues to deliver on its promise to invest in Madison Heights. We are honored to have Liberty as part of our community.”
In partnership with the city of Madison Heights, Holistic Industries has donated more than $50,000 to the community and has events and activations planned throughout the year including the Grand Opening Food Drive with Madison Heights Pantry, sponsorship of the Madison Heights Chamber of Commerce golf outing and sponsorship of Madison Heights’ upcoming Juneteenth event.
