GreenLight Little Rock opens, manager announces earlier opening hours September 9, 2022 By Griffin Coop Little Rock’s newest dispensary will soon have the earliest opening hours of any marijuana outlet in the capital city, according to Chris Kelley who manages the state’s three GreenLight dispensaries. GreenLight Little Rock, which held its grand opening last week, is the third GreenLight location in the state after other stores in Helena-West Helena and West Memphis. GreenLight previously had a location in Monticello but the dispensary notified the state Medical Marijuana Commission on Thursday that it would be changing its name to Good Day Farm Monticello. Beginning Sept. 19, all GreenLight locations in the state will open Monday through Saturday at 9 a.m. The stores will open at 10 a.m. Monday through Saturday until then, according to Chris Kelley who manages all three Arkansas locations. The Little Rock store will be open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, while the other two GreenLight locations will open at noon. Little Rock’s other two dispensaries, Berner’s by Good Day Farm and Native Green Little Rock, open everyday at 10 a.m. Kelley said patients will benefit from the earlier opening hours. “We’re going to be open an hour earlier than everyone else, so that way (patients) may not have to use their lunch break or anything like that, to come in and get what they need,” he said. Kelley said he hopes to boost the Little Rock store’s flower sales. Typically, flower accounts for 70-80% of sales, Kelley said, but flower only accounts for about 60% of sales at the Little Rock store. The Little Rock store was under different ownership and called CuraLeaf until the Medical Marijuana Commission approved the sale of the business to James Barnes and Matt Summitt last month. The 7,300-square-foot store, located at 7303 Kanis Road, has two floors but Kelley said Friday he wasn’t ready to divulge plans for the 3,600 square feet on the second floor.
