Solar Therapeutics is now open in Somerset. The recreational marijuana retailer has held a soft opening already. The state has just over 20 recreational marijuana. Some are not announcing to big audiences that they are opening, like Solar Therapeutics, so they can have a smoother opening process.
The recreational marijuana retailer will have a larger, formal grand opening in September, Turn to 10 says. By doing a soft opening and keeping it semi-quiet, the company is able to see where it might have flaws. This gives them time to adjust and make corrections before being open to the masses.
One customer, Erika Bagley, said, “I thought it was nice. It was welcoming. I was a little nervous, honestly, coming here. I feel like I’m doing something wrong. But I’m not. I’m all about the legalization of marijuana. I think it really helps people. It’s the natural thing to do. I just wanted to buy my first legal weed, I guess.”
