NEC News Today was on location for the Bud’s Goods & Provisions grand opening of their cannabis retail store in Watertown Massachusetts on May 20th, 2022. President & CEO Alex Mazin was there to welcome neighbors and thank cannabis enthusiasts for visiting. The store is uniquely situated in a mixed use building that also houses the Watermills residential apartments. “We’re really thinking about the cannabis consumer of today and tomorrow,” said Mazin as the store opened its doors. “This has been a 7 year journey to open this store and its a very unique store because its the only one in a residential mixed use building.”
We explored “Bud’s house” and made our way from the welcome area which Mazin describes as the porch, next we visit the pantry which is filled with edible products, after that we explore the library of flower and concentrate, and we end up in the great room where you can find accessories, merchandise, and finalize your purchase. We enjoyed the roomy layout and appreciated the unique trinkets in the library that gave it that authentic look and feel.
The environment was friendly, inviting, and comfortable which Mazin hopes will help build a positive relationship with individuals the local community. “Ultimately I think this is one of the most unique immersive cannabis retail experiences designed in the country. It’s hard for words to explain until you come and really walk through for yourself,” said Mazin. Bud’s Goods & Provisions location also operates adult-use dispensaries in Abington and Worcester.
