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 St., the building has had more than $500,000 invested in it by Gath, 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 the store’s 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 or 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 email@example.com or call 781-605-1932.
“Misty Mountain Shop is not your typical dispensary,” said Gath. “Our mission is to create positive and exciting experiences for the Malden Community inside and outside of our Marijuana Establishment.”
