Retail chains and grocers bring CBD sales to Missouri
Dierbergs, Kroger, GNC, and Ulta are among the growing list of retailers bringing CBD into retail locations and online sales, but separating them from the pack is their presence in the Show-Me State.
Dierbergs, owned and operated in Missouri (with two locations in the Greater St. Louis area of Illinois), rolled out sales starting early in June, while Kroger the nation’ largest grocer, announced plans in mid-June to begin rolling out topicals onto shelves later this year, with no firm date set in the initial announcement.
GNC and Ulta are two of the most identifiable brands offering CBD sales online and in retail spaces including Missouri.
Other well known brands including: Rite-Aid, Walgreens, CVS, Urban Outfitters and others, offer CBD sales in select locations, but so far none of those retailers have crossed into Missouri yet.
New York investment bank Cowen & Co. released a study on the CBD industry estimating the CBD market to grow to $16 billion by 2025.
