Here’s the press release

Operated by the leading Chicago-based cannabis company Revolution Global, Enlightened is well positioned to contribute to Illinois’ skyrocketing cannabis market. So far this year, the state has generated upwards of $86.5 million in cannabis tax dollars, outpacing liquor tax revenue for the first time.

“Revolution is proud to call Illinois our home state, with local officials who have set the gold standard of legal cannabis regulations,” said Dusty Shroyer, President and COO of Revolution, which operates the Enlightened™ brand. “Schaumburg and Mount Prospect are dream locations for Enlightened™ to plant its flag and we’re thrilled to expand our footprint, extending our world-class cannabis and people-centric mission to more consumers across Illinois.”

Serving as the brand’s Illinois flagship store, Enlightened Schaumburg boasts approximately 4,500 square feet of retail space and offers something for everyone. The distinctive Enlightened location provides an educational hands-on experience, with mobile budtenders (known as cannabis guides) and glass display cases showcasing a range of product throughout the store.

Community members are invited to attend the Schaumburg grand opening event on Friday, April 30, for COVID-safe outdoor festivities, beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 AM CST, followed by food and entertainment throughout the day. In support of local residents, a percentage of total sales from April 30 through May 2 will be donated to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry.

The medical cannabis dispensary New Age Care, which has served patients in Mount Prospect since 2015, is also being rebranded to join the Enlightened™ family this month. Revolution is currently finalizing New Age Care renovation and expansion, to relaunch as an adult-use and medicinal cannabis retailer, now known as Enlightened™ Mount Prospect.

The Enlightened™ Schaumburg and Mount Prospect locations will both offer unique loyalty programs for frequent customers.
