Owners backpedal on plans for ‘Topless’ dispensary in Whatley
In a surprising turn of events, Nicholas Spagnola and Julius Sokol, the owners of Club Castaway in Whately, have decided to scrap their daring venture of a ‘topless’ cannabis dispensary. The entrepreneurs shared their plan to blend the world of adult entertainment with the blooming cannabis industry earlier this year. However, according to recent reporting from MassLive, it appears the club will not be branching into this novel niche after all, instead to return to its roots.
Club Castaway is now gearing up for its grand reopening in August, after being closed since the pandemic, signifying a new but familiar chapter for this local landmark. Spagnola and Sokol, both experienced real estate agents in Boston, have been steering the club since late 2019 after acquiring it from its longtime owner. Despite the initial excitement about the prospects of a unique fusion of cannabis retail and adult entertainment, the plan has been left by the wayside. Whether this decision is a missed opportunity or a wise choice will remain a topic of debate among consumers and industry-experts alike.
