City of Salem Prepares for Opening of ATG
Third adult-use cannabis retail establishment in Massachusetts opens Saturday, December 15; customers required to make appointments online to visit the store.

SALEM – ATG, which in 2015 was Massachusetts’ first medical marijuana dispensary to open to the public, will open for adult-use cannabis retail sales on Saturday, December 15, becoming the third such establishment to open for business in Massachusetts.

The City of Salem has been actively coordinating for the last few weeks with ATG, Peabody Police, and the MBTA transit police in order to prepare for the upcoming opening of ATG for recreational marijuana sales. From the City’s perspective these efforts have included Salem Police, the Fire Department, the Mayor’s office, Traffic and Parking, Public Works, the Health Department, and the Building Department. The City is approaching this event similar to how it approaches large scale event planning and logistics in general in Salem.

Anyone planning to visit ATG after it opens for recreational marijuana sales on Saturday should utilize the online reservation system that will be online at www.atgma.org. ATG’s website will have detailed instructions for the purchasing procedures and other FAQ's. Customers without a reservation will not be allowed into the facility and will be turned away.

The City has imposed temporary resident-only parking zones in the neighborhoods closest to the store and enforcement for parking, traffic, and police patrol will be enhanced in this area of the City for the foreseeable future. Customers are advised to take the MBTA commuter rail to Salem and then take the ATG shuttle bus from the station to the store. The ATG shuttle bus will only transport customers with confirmation of a valid reservation and a photo ID.Do not drive to ATG.

Residents are encouraged to call the Salem Police at 978-744-1212to report illegally parked vehicles, trespassing, or any other nuisance behavior. In an emergency, dial 911

December at the Gables

Few communities have the rich legacy of historic houses that Salem, Massachusetts boasts. These homes, spanning four centuries, help define the character as well as the appearance of the city, and every year some of their owners invite visitors in to view their homes decked out in full holiday regalia. To cap off the 350th anniversary celebration of the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion, The House of the Seven Gables is delighted to be the headquarters for the 2018 Christmas in Salem celebration.

The preview kicks off on Friday, November 30 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm. Selected homes will twinkle in the winter twilight and tour goers will be able to enjoy a mini Salem Food Tour, and a wine tasting at Salem Wine Imports. New this year is the Salem History Meetup at the Salem Waterfront Hotel at 8:00 pm. On Saturday and Sunday, 15 private homes and historic sites will be open to Christmas in Salem attendees.
