“I never imagined our first store in the South being in Arkansas; I actually never pictured opening a store in the South in general,” said Berner, Founder and CEO of Cookies. “We are extremely excited about our partnership with Good Day Farm and look forward to providing real menus and a curated customer journey for those in Arkansas, especially those who have never experienced cannabis before.
