Arizona cannabis dispensary flying high after redesign
A state-licensed cannabis dispensary in Phoenix, Arizona, has recouped the cost of a redesign in just two weeks by increasing sales.
TruMed Dispensary is one of around 100 licensed dispensaries of medical marijuana in Arizona, opened since the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act was implemented in 2010. Around 40,000 customers, registered by doctors, use the dispensaries.
The business opened its new concentrates bar to provide an original retail concept which is describes as “A fresh and modern cannabis shopping experience”. Concentrate sales are growing faster than those of other types of the drug.
The High Road Design Studio, which specialises in cannabis-related retail design, designed the new bar. In the month after opening it achieved higher sales than the dispensary saw in the whole of 2014.
It features a bright and modern interior with a variety of textured surfaces and a zebra-print effect floor. Outside areas are landscaped to crate a calm entrance to the store.
“Helping [marijuana] businesses sharpen their retail design, enhance their image and atmosphere and position them for continued growth and efficiency is The High Road Design Studio’s mission,” says agency founder Megan Stone.
