The new Shango cannabis provisioning store in Hazel Park has a homegrown strain among its owners and was finishing up the last day of a multi-part grand opening Tuesday.
Ownership of the location includes resident Curtis Goure. His family has owned and operated the BDT Smoke Shop in the city for nearly a half century.
“I’m proud to be the only licensed retail operator in Hazel Park who can call himself a resident,” Goure said in a statement. “We hope that the (Shango) Hazel Park Provisioning Center will be one of the crown jewels of the revitalization of the Chrysler Drive District.”
The cannabis store is inside the former Coney Cravers restaurant at 22821 S. Chrysler Dr., just south of Nine Mile Road.
Shango’s soft opening last month makes it the fifth marijuana business in the city so far.
Over the weekend, the business had food trucks, a live DJ, and tents featuring cannabis products that were given away.
