Fire Station Cannabis to open site in Iron River
IRON RIVER — The Fire Station Cannabis Co. has received local approval for a new retail location on North Fourth Avenue in Iron River.
Expected to open in spring 2022, it will be the seventh storefront for the U.P.-owned cannabis retailer.
“There is a deep sense of community and pride in Iron River that stems from its history in mining and logging,” said Logan Stauber, co-owner and co-CEO of TFS. “I am excited to share our company’s sense of community and the pride we have for being the Upper Peninsula’s first licensed recreational cannabis company with the people of Iron River.”
Making a positive impact on the economies of the U.P. is a top priority for The Fire Station. TFS employs more than 100 Upper Peninsula residents, and the new Iron River location will create more than 20 additional jobs for local community members. Wages for all positions with TFS start at over 200% of the federal poverty level.
A grand opening date will be announced in early 2022.
The Fire Station was established in 2019 and has four U.P. retail locations: Marquette, Negaunee, Houghton and Hannahville. Two additional stores are slated to open by year’s end in Sault Ste. Marie and Munsing.
