How and when did your retail store start up?
We started on October 31, 2015. Through a business opportunity we acquired a 502 permit.
What’s the story behind the name of your retail store?
It was the name of the permit holder’s liquor store.
What does your retail store offer customers that they can’t find anywhere else?
We offer a safe and friendly environment with educated bud tenders.
How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?
We would like to see the taxes drop before they kill the industry!
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a retail store?
Taxes! Other challenges are dealing with the micro management of products and rules.
What is the one thing you want consumers to know about your retail store?
We carry great, top-shelf products at good prices and a nice environment.
If someone wanted to open a retail store and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Don’t do it. It’s not a good investment, and it is too risky with the unlimited number of stores open now.
What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the cannabis community?
We hope to help the folks that need medical assistance with their products for their health issues.
