Aurora, Colo. — Aurora elected officials and business leaders backed Terrapin Care Station this morning in celebrating the remodel and expansion of the cannabis company’s store on Mississippi Avenue.
Located at 11091 E. Mississippi Ave., the retail cannabis center boasts nearly 8,000 square feet of space, adding nearly 4,500 square feet over the previous store. TCS expects to see a jump in sales at the coveted highly visible location as a result of the remodel, which equates to additional jobs and an economic and social benefit to the community.
“It is important to the Aurora City Council to use revenue from the industry in ways that directly benefit the community,” said Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan, who was invited to attend a ribbon-cutting event for the grand opening of the remodeled store. “This year we are supporting a number of homelessness initiatives, building a new Central Recreation Center, and taking care of some greatly needed transportation projects with these funds.”
In addition to Mayor Hogan, Aurora councilmembers and business leaders expressed support for Terrapin Care Station’s commitment to the community, including Amendment 64 Ad Hoc Committee members Mayor Pro Tem Marsha Berzins, Councilwoman Nicole Johnston, and Councilman Bob Roth. The Aurora Chamber of Commerce also expressed its support.
“The Aurora Chamber is happy to have Terrapin Care Station as members of the Chamber and the Aurora community, specifically for the additional jobs and revenue they bring to the community,” said Rene Simard, executive vice president of the Aurora Chamber.
Terrapin Care Station makes an impact by planting local roots. The company is a member of the Aurora Chamber of Commerce, and it participates in the Aurora Police Association’s Shop with a Cop program, an annual back to school event in which students shop for supplies with law enforcement officers. Terrapin Care Station also participates in and sponsors LGBT causes, including Aurora PrideFest.

The company has always set itself apart in a competitive cannabis industry by offering streamlined services, quality products and affordable prices. The remodel of Mississippi Avenue keeps in line with Terrapin Care Station’s commitment to fast and convenient service.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Chris Woods, founder, owner and chief executive of Terrapin Care Station. “For one, we’re able to better serve customers and the community with this remodel and expansion. But to also receive such an outpouring of support from Aurora’s elected officials and business leaders, it’s both heartening and humbling.
