Bay City is home to the first of 30 planned Skymint medical marijuana retail stores in Michigan owned by Lansing-based Green Peak Innovations. The store, at 4330 Wilder Road, opened today.
The establishment, which the company says will feature the “highest quality medical marijuana and marijuana products in a contemporary, thoughtful, and inviting setting that reimagines the cannabis-buying experience,” will be open from 9 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. seven days a week. Customers will need to show identification and a medical marijuana card to gain entry.
“Skymint medical marijuana customers and employees personify blue sky thinkers who want only the best in life,” says Jeff Radway, CEO of Green Peaks Innovation. “Skymint is reimagining what the cannabis experience feels like. We are launching this industry-setting model right here in Michigan and plan to expand it nationally.”
Additional Skymint stores will open in Newaygo, Ann Arbor, Nunica, Flint/Mt. Morris, Lansing, and Traverse City over the next few months.
“We are excited to launch 30 Skymint stores across Michigan within the next 24 months,” says Joe Neller, chief government affairs officer at Green Peak Innovations. “We have carefully selected partner communities that are searching for a professional, best-in-class organization.”
Summer Ransom-Cleveland, president of Skymint’s retail division, says, “We want the Skymint experience to feel special for our medical marijuana customers. We strive to serve our communities by providing an environment that offers browsability, discovery, and ease of purchase; one that will continuously evolve alongside our customers’ needs and expectations.”
