Skymint, a leading purveyor of cannabis brands and lifestyle products based in Ann Arbor, today announced the opening of a new store in Coldwater (south of Battle Creek) off Interstate-69 in a former Sears retail store.
The location, Skymint’s 15th location in Michigan, celebrated its grand opening and ribbon cutting with members of the Coldwater Area Chamber of Commerce on Aug. 5.
“At Skymint, we’re about celebrating the intersection of cannabis, fashion, food, art, and music,” says Aimee Michalak, senior director of marketing for Skymint. “This store was specifically chosen for its location and convenience, allowing us to bring an unparalleled shopping experience to locals as well as those traveling through.”
The location will have brightly lit white walls, an illuminated logo, and a high industrial ceiling couple with handcrafted wooden shelving units that will display over 250 products. It will feature lounge chairs, vinyl record players, hanging pipe rails, and a woven mural, created by Julie Lowry, Skymint’s store corporate merchandiser and visual artist, with colorful panels and the words ‘Flower to the People.’
“Skymint is known for creating a destination space in each of Skymint’s chosen cities, and our new Skymint Coldwater retail store is just that with 4,000 square feet of exploratory, artfully staged product vignettes and accessories, including coffee table books, clothing, countertop infusion kitchenware, hand-made and vintage ceramic smoking accoutrements, and more,” says Summer Ransom-Cleveland, the company’s president of retail.
More than 60 brands will be featured at the store, including the exclusive Skymint x DNA Genetics collection — one of the largest selections of sustainably harvested cannabis available anywhere in Michigan.
“Skymint is proud to be a meaningful economic force and powerful contributor to Michigan’s booming cannabis industry,” says Jeff Radway, CEO and co-founder of Skymint. “We invest in each and every community of which we are a part with over 500 new jobs created throughout Michigan and $500,000 invested in organizations and nonprofits to date.”
