FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SKYMINT – MICHIGAN’S LEADING CANNABIS RETAILER – BRINGS LARGEST STOREFRONT TO BIG RAPIDS
With 6400 sq. ft, a high-end SMOKE SHOP with artisanal and handcrafted accoutrements, and a SKYMINT EXPRESS fast-track check-out lane — SKYMINT Big Rapids marks the company’s 13th and largest retail store location.
BIG RAPIDS, MI, June 17, 2021 – SKYMINT, Michigan’s leading purveyor of premium cannabis brands and products, today announced the grand opening of its largest location yet with SKYMINT Big Rapids, set to welcome the public on Thursday, June 26. Sleek, fresh, irreverent and creatively infused, SKYMINT’s 13th cannabis retail store in Michigan is conveniently located near Highway 131, just across from the main campus of Ferris State University, and boasts 6,400 square feet of artfully staged product vignettes and brands.
“SKYMINT Big Rapids represents the culmination of our promise to create a vibe-enhanced retail experience that brings consumers into our world and inspires them to want to stay and explore,” says SKYMINT’s President of Retail Summer Ransom-Cleveland, who until 2017 was the North America Visual Director for Urban Outfitters. “SKYMINT doesn’t just sell the best cannabis Michigan has to offer; we sell and curate a lifestyle that elevates the way people think and talk about cannabis. Beginning in Fall 2021, we look forward to hosting in-store community events that bring together the worlds of cannabis, fashion, food and music.”
Featuring more than 60 brands — including the exclusive SKYMINT X DNA Genetics collection, North Cannabis™ gummies, as well as other curated lines such as Flower by Edie Parker, Lil Wayne’s break-out Gkua, and Crude Boys – SKYMINT Big Rapids welcomes customers to sit and relax in its high-end SMOKE SHOP, enjoy vinyl records of beloved bands and music with historical ties to cannabis, and shop for vintage apparel. For those needing to grab and go, a SKYMINT EXPRESS fast-track check-out lane opens in August of 2021.
“We believe that happy plants make happy people and, to that end, we look forward to inspiring joy among the Big Rapids community by providing the largest selection available anywhere in Michigan of high-quality, sustainably harvested, and award-winning cannabis flower and pre-rolls. SKYMINT Big Rapids also carries a generously curated assortment of select edibles, concentrates, CBD products, vapes, and infusions. It’s our goal to feature something for everyone as they continue on their journey towards a more joyful, health-forward life,” says Laurie Gregory, SKYMINT Brands’ Chief Brand and Product Officer.
Opening during Pride Month, SKYMINT Big Rapids joins the rest of the SKYMINT family in supporting the critical work of Fair and Equal Michigan, a nonprofit devoted to ensuring that every person in Michigan’s LGBTQIA+ community has an equal chance at success. “Our mission is to change people’s lives for the better,” Gregory says, “and supporting the civil rights of all people in our community is a key component of that. We celebrate inclusivity and positivity and appreciate the opportunity to donate to nonprofits that are similarly aligned.”
Throughout June, SKYMINT customers can give back to Fair and Equal Michigan by taking selfies against the in-store Pride backdrops at select SKYMINT locations; for every selfie posted to social media with the hashtag #skymintpride, SKYMINT will donate $2 to Fair and Equal Michigan.
SKYMINT Big Rapids has slated a ribbon cutting and preview event for dignitaries and members of the press on Thursday, June 17 at 9:30am; the grand opening takes place the following week on Saturday, June 26, and features discounts, surprises, and treats for all who attend.
