Wareham’s third retail cannabis shop opened earlier this month, and Dispensary Manager Jacqueline Robillard said business has been steady since opening day on April 6.
“We try to create a mature shopping experience,” Robillard said, sitting on a cozy chair in one of the dispensary’s consulting areas.
Nature’s Medicines operates several dispensaries across the nation, from New Mexico to Michigan to Missouri. The Wareham location is the company’s third recreational dispensary to open in Massachusetts, with two already in business in Uxbridge and Fall River.
The dispensary marks Wareham’s third, and final, retail cannabis business under the town’s self-imposed cap of three retail licenses.
The Wareham shop differs from Nature’s other Massachusetts dispensaries, Robillard said, as the newest dispensary offers an open shopping experience for customers.
In Fall River and Uxbridge, customers are in line as soon as they enter the dispensary, and they can speak with an employee and pick out products when they reach the front.
In the new Nature’s Medicines in Jordan Plaza, the experience is more open. Customers can roam the main room, peer into display cases of — empty — packaging, advertising products like “Mr. Moxey’s Mints” and cannabis-infused “sea salt caramel bites,” before buying something.
