Salem, MA – October 9, 2019 – Even before the doors have opened to the public, the sales team at Insa Salem, Insa’s soon-to-open recreational cannabis dispensary in the city, has already made a positive mark on the community they serve. Beginning with a highway cleanup campaign along Highland Avenue that ran from September 16 through the 18th, the team has since taken on projects big and small in support of the Salem community. These have included volunteering at My Brother’s Place, a local soup kitchen; lending hands to a cleanup of Lynn Woods; helping out at the Salem Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival; and setting up for the Haunted Happenings Salem Parade.

‘“Community service is a huge part of who we are at Insa, and to have our newest team members  jump into that so enthusiastically is truly a testament to the positive culture of this company,” said Luis Pedro, Insa’s Director of Operations. “We’ve had so much success with our community initiatives around the neighborhoods of our existing shops, and we can’t wait to see that carry over into Salem.”

The Insa Salem team’s work follows Insa’s budding tradition of enthusiastic community service. This past spring, the Insa Community Crew removed several dozen bags of trash and debris from the area around the Mill Pond in Easthampton, and recently held a pet adoption drive at Insa’s Easthampton headquarters.

Final regulatory approval for Insa Salem, located at 462 Highland Avenue, has been included on the Cannabis Control Commission’s meeting agenda for Thursday, October 11. If approval is granted, Insa CEO Mark Zatyrka says the next step is to pass the final inspections and then open the doors to the public.

“We would aim to have that happen as soon as we could,” he said. Once a certificate to commence operations is issued by the state, Insa Salem’s opening date will be announced. Those planning on visiting are encouraged to park in the Wal-Mart parking lot immediately adjoining the Insa lot.
