Mayor Gary Christenson was pleased to attend the historical ribbon cutting ceremony of Malden’s first Cannabis retailer, Misty Mountain Shop. Business Owner Erik Gath and his team have worked tirelessly on the licensing and construction process since September of 2019 when their application was approved by the Malden Cannabis & Licensing Enforcement Commission. Located at 323 Commercial Street, Gath incorporated more than $500,000 into the building which included incorporating a state-of-the-art security system and demolishing part of the building for extra parking.
Gath is particularly excited to highlight the in-store experience. Employees or “Guides” are trained to guide customers through their buying experience; not just to make a transaction. As their menu is substantial, Guides are extensively trained on all products to enable customers to make the purchase that is right for them. Patrons will never feel rushed – instead they will be encouraged to sit at the bud-bar, by the fireplace, or swing on the chairlift as they contemplate purchases.
In addition to the shopping experience, Misty Mountain Shop plans to partner with local businesses to host fun and exciting community events. Whether it is Sunday morning yoga, charity cornhole tournaments, or a Friday night garage band, Misty Mountain Shop plans to be true community partners. Local businesses interested in collaborating may contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (781) 605-1932.
“Misty Mountain Shop is not your typical dispensary,” said Owner Erik Gath. “Our mission is to create positive and exciting experiences for the Malden Community inside and outside of our Marijuana Establishment.” Hours of operation are 10 AM-10 PM 7 days per week.
