This CT city will be getting its third cannabis dispensary — with a drive-thru

CoStar 185 Spencer St., Manchester

A multistate cannabis business has received approvals for a new retail dispensary in Manchester, which would be the town’s third dispensary since the state’s recreational market launched last year.

Ayr Wellness, a multistate cannabis operator based in Florida with 88 dispensaries across the country, won a special exception for its newest planned dispensary at 185 Spencer St., Manchester. The existing 1,585-square-foot building on the property formerly hosted a Starbucks, but is currently vacant.

Ayr said it will convert the building into a cannabis dispensary that will be open seven days a week and employ up to 10 people.

There’s an existing drive-thru on the building, which Ayr said it will use for online order pickups.
