The marijuana dispensary in Collinsville will temporarily halt sales to the public on Monday after what it called “unprecedented demand throughout the state.”

HCI Alternatives, soon to be known as Illinois Supply and Provisions, said in a Sunday news release that it must stop selling cannabis on Jan. 13 to recreational users to “replenish adult-use inventory and allow staff to recharge.”

The company said it was also halting sales at its Springfield location. Both dispensaries are expected to resume on Jan. 14.
