SALEM, Ore. — Kaya Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:KAYS), announced today that it has received its 3rd Marijuana Retailer license from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC), and has opened its third Kaya Shack Retail Marijuana location.
Kaya Shack 3, with more than 2400 square feet of Class “A” retail space in North Salem, Oregon is built on the Marijuana Superstore Model and features a wide selection of fine, affordable cannabis, cannabis infused products, and accessories for both recreational customers and medical marijuana patients.
“This new store is the next step in the execution of our business plan. Although its opening was delayed by a transitioning regulatory environment, we are hopeful that it will serve as a cornerstone of our presence in Salem,” stated Craig Frank, CEO of Kaya Holdings.
In related news KAYS announced that it has hired Greg Perkins of More Realty to assist in identifying a suitable 30-60 acre tract of land in Oregon for KAYS to expand its growing operations to the maximum space currently allowed by law utilizing a mix of indoor and greenhouse cultivation. Additionally, KAYS is hoping to position itself through the potential acquisition of this property for future development including increased Marijuana Canopy production, development of marijuana processing facilities and other cannabis related endeavors (subject to local zoning restrictions or liberalization of restrictions). KAYS will cease operations of its Portland grow facility at the end of March and has made arrangements to maintain its genetics library of over 30 strains of cannabis at a medical grow site to be registered shortly, and has already contracted with farmers to meet demand until the new facility is fully operational.
