We’re excited to continue our expansion in Florida, celebrating our 48th store opening.

We will continue to grow our presence during the second half of this year.
In February 2021, Ayr purchased Florida-based Liberty Health Sciences (“LHS” or “Liberty”), which included 31 dispensaries across the state.
