    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine’s rollout of legal marijuana sales has been muted compared with other states because of the coronavirus pandemic, but shops are reporting brisk business nonetheless. Maine wasn’t able to replicate the grand opening scenes that have followed the first sales in other states. But regulators reported more than $1 million in sales in October, more than $1.2 million in November and nearly $2 million in December. The number of retail businesses also continues to grow. “Despite all the market challenges, everything from COVID to supply chains and beyond, Maine has done a really good job getting this market up and running,” said Thomas Winstanley, vice president of marketing for Theory Wellness, which has locations in South Portland and Waterville. “Cannabis is becoming part of the social fabric.” Nearly a third of U.S. states have approved legal adult use marijuana. That includes several states with longer established marijuana programs and four that just went legal in the 2020 elections and are developing programs. But only Maine went legal in 2016 and then took nearly four years to...

    The retail empire of tycoon Philip Green, which owns well-known British fashion chains like Topshop, appears to be on the brink of collapse following the economic shock of the coronavirus pandemic. In another blow to the British retailing industry in the run-up to the crucial Christmas trading period, Arcadia Group said Friday it is working on “contingency options to secure the future of the group’s brands.” Like other high street names, Arcadia’s brands – which employ around 15,000 people and include Burton, Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins – have suffered during the pandemic and the associated restrictions across the UK. Competition has increased from low-cost rivals like Primark, as well as from online disruptors such as ASOS and Boohoo. Critics have also said that the 68-year-old Green, who has been embroiled in a series of controversies over the past few years, has not invested enough in the businesses to get them in shape to deal with the new competition in retail. In a statement, the group sought to blame the virus for its woes. It said the “forced closure...

    Starting Monday, myriad businesses can welcome patrons across much of the Bay Area after Gov. Gavin Newsom rolled out a new system to track counties’ prevalence of COVID-19 and guide the reopening process. In lieu of the state’s coronavirus watchlist — which was criticized by local officials for its litany of requirements — the new system considers only the counties’ positivity rate and cases per 100,000 residents. Counties may move from purple (widespread transmission) to red (substantial) to orange (moderate) to yellow (minimal) only after spending a minimum of three weeks in each category.
