Pot shop, cafe to open Friday in Wheeling

Editor's note: The name of the bakery has been corrected.

Wheeling's second cannabis dispensary is set to open Friday.

Called OKAY Cannabis, the store will operate at 781 N. Milwaukee Ave. in a building last occupied by a Twin Peaks restaurant that closed in 2019.

It'll share the building with the also-new West Town Bakery Cafe & Lounge.

West Town and OKAY Cannabis are owned by the same company, the Fifty/50 Restaurant Group, but will be run separately.

Both OKAY Cannabis and West Town will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Customers must be at least 21 to enter OKAY Cannabis, which will have a separate entrance within the building. West Town is open to anyone.

Wheeling's other dispensary, Hatch, opened in 2021 at 1500 E. Lake-Cook Road.
