Ojai | Shangri La Care Cooperative Named Small Business of the Year

Shangri La Care Cooperative Named Small Business of the Year.Early marijuana delivery service has won over the community of Ojai, CA.

One of the early medical marijuana businesses in Ojai, California, Shangri La Care Cooperative was named Small Business of the Year by the Ojai Valley Chamber of Commerce at its gala awards ceremony last Thursday, February 28. Along with the award was a proclamation from the Ventura County Board of Supervisors, signed by Steve Bennett of the First District. The Cooperative’s president, Jeffrey Kroll accepted the award.
 
“Early on, we were met with many obstacles from powers outside of the valley,” said Kroll. “But the people of Ojai continued to support us and helped our business grow. With legalization last year, we have opened a dispensary and expanded to care for many more people, especially the aging, who want a better quality of life without addictive opioids. We appreciate the support the community has given us over the last eight years as we developed a business of bringing alternative care products to the Ojai Valley.”
 
Shangri La Care Cooperative was first a delivery operation before being set upon by law enforcement four years ago. Eventually, all accusations and charges were dropped though a fight continues for the return of property from Ventura County’s Sheriff Department.
 
Kroll has plans to grow the Cooperative. “We expect to expand to several locations and now have our license for delivery. I’ll be announcing several new ventures in the near future.”
 
Shangri La Care Cooperative is open Monday – Saturday 10 am – 7 pm and Sunday 12 pm – 7 pm and located at 408 Bryant Circle, Suite G, Ojai, CA 93023.
