Keystone Shops will be opening its doors to all Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana patients on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at its location at 420 W. Lancaster Ave, Devon, PA 19333. Doors open at 1PM. No appointments will be necessary for the Grand Opening day. In fact, for that first day patients will only be served on a first come, first served basis. No appointments will be taken for Grand Opening day.
Important note: If you plan on coming to Keystone Shops on Grand Opening Day, please join Keystone Shops’ newsletter and/or check the Website before coming to the event for critical updates. The program is brand new and it is possible that delays in the program at the state level, delays from the Grower-Processor level or inclement weather could impact our opening times or date.
We expect to be the first to open in the Southeastern part of Pennsylvania. If you are a patient planning on attending Keystone Shops’ Grand Opening, please read the following carefully. It will help to make the most of your experience.
What Will Happen on Grand Opening Day?
For patients planning on attending the Grand Opening, please make sure you have a valid government issued ID and your medical marijuana card. Also, Keystone Shops hopes to accept debit cards but just in case, make sure you have enough cash to make your initial purchase. Your Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana card MUST HAVE A VALID ISSUE DATE as of the date you arrive at the dispensary. We will not be able to accept patients on February 17th with Issue Dates on their card later than February 17th.
The Easttown Police Department will be coordinating traffic into the parking lot. We expect to have an overflow parking lot in case our primary lot fills up. Keystone Shops Security personnel and Easttown Police will direct you to the right location. You will be given a numbered tag to place in your car so you can be brought into the dispensary in the proper order.
Before seeing one of our Medical Consultants, you will be asked to complete an initial patient intake form and to complete a patient release form. After you are directed into the lobby by Keystone Shops security personnel, your information will be entered into our system by a receptionist.
Now you are ready to meet with one of our medical consultants. These individuals are either licensed medical practitioners or dispensary staff with prior medical marijuana experience. They will discuss your needs with you and complete a dispensing recommendation that you can take to the dispensary floor.
Once on the dispensary floor, you will be welcomed by one of our dispensary technicians to fulfill your order. They will work with you to provide the products that match the dispensing recommendation received from the medical consultant. You will receive anywhere from a 1 week to 30 day supply of medicine, depending on availability and the dispensing recommendation.
Background on Keystone Shops
Keystone Shops was awarded one of 27 permits to dispense medical marijuana in PA on June 29, 2017. Their application ranked as the eighth highest score in state.
Keystone Shops at Devon was deemed operational by the Department of Health on January 25th, as the fourth dispensary to be opened in the state. As of the operational announcement, there are over 3000 patients certified as medical marijuana patients. This number has been growing rapidly since program registration began late in 2017.
The first medical marijuana will be distributed in mid-February by experienced Grower-Processor Cresco-Yeltrah and is expected to be made available to roughly a half dozen dispensaries that will be open on or near the first day. In the Philadelphia area, Keystone Shops expects to be the first to open its doors.
From ranking as the 8th best application to the 4th to be deemed operational to the first to serve… Keystone Shops plans to remain PA’s number one destination for medical marijuana.
