Walking into the newly opened Market 96 neighborhood dispensary in Oswego is like walking into a neighborhood market.
“We want all of our guests to feel valued and welcome.”
— Market 96 supervisor Jay Williams
“That was our whole plan,” said Jay Williams, who is one of the supervisors at Market 96. “We wanted to bring a different and more welcoming experience for the guests.”
Market 96 held a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on Sept. 14 at its new marijuana dispensary at 1144 Douglas Road in Oswego in the Mason Square shopping center.
Market 96 is Oswego’s first marijuana dispensary. Another dispensary, Cloud 9, is set to open in a former fast food restaurant at 2420 Route 30 in the Townes Crossing shopping center.
“Those are the only two that are going to be allowed in Oswego,” Williams said. “Oswego is a small enough community that I think two would support them very well.”
Selling recreational marijuana became legal in Illinois in January 2020. This is Market 96′s first dispensary in Illinois.
