Hello, readers! Welcome back to Business Briefcase.

This week we have a few new businesses on our agenda, with a dispensary, several new tea-related ventures, and even the Glendale Chamber of Commerce.

Let’s get into it!

First, Harvest Health and Recreation recently opened a Glendale location. Harvest is a multi-state cannabis operator and vertically integrated cannabis company.

Harvest of Glendale is at 13631 N. 59th Avenue, near the southeast corner of Thunderbird Road and 59th Avenue. For more information, visit harvestinc.com/location/glendale.

To access the website, possible customers must be at least 21 years of age and possess a valid MMJ (medical marijuana) card.

How about Tastea? Now open in Glendale, Tastea offers a variety of smoothies and teas, as well as even milk teas and cold brew coffee.

It is located at 9184 W. Northern Avenue, Suite 105, northwest of Northern and 91st avenues.

And finally, the Downtown Glendale Merchant and Stakeholder Meeting is returning. It will be from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 16. The first half hour is dedicated to check-ins, light refreshments and networking, while the meeting will occupy the final portion.

This event is targeted at individuals who own a downtown business or even just have some sort of stake in the success of the community.

It is suggested that guests bring business cards, as networking aside there will be a door prize drawing. Bringing a door prize related to your business is suggested, too.

The event will be once again held at Off the Cuff, 5817 W. Glendale Avenue, next to the Cuff restaurant.
