Whatcom County’s third 2020 Solutions recreational cannabis store opened April 1 at 4770 Pacific Highway, Bellingham, just south of the Interstate 5/Slater Road interchange.
The first two 2020 Solutions stores – located at 2018 Iron St. in downtown Bellingham and 5655 Guide Meridian, several miles north of Bellingham – combined to be the leading recreational cannabis retail brand in Whatcom County in 2016, totaling over $6.4 million in sales.
Unlike the first two, the newest 2020 Solutions store is owned and operated by Chris McDoniel. He said its location is the most convenient recreational cannabis store for I-5 travelers, especially those headed to the Silver Reef Hotel Casino Spa, Bellingham International Airport or the new Bellingham Costco store.
“Chris recognized the accomplishments of 2020 Solutions and wanted to have that same experience and atmosphere in his store,” said Aaron Nelson, Senior Vice President of Operations for 2020 Solutions. “Using the formula of Whatcom County’s favorite cannabis retailer, the Pacific Highway store will offer the same great level of service you would find at any 2020 Solutions location.
“Our success comes from first providing customers a professional, comfortable store environment, then assisting them with trained and knowledgeable budtenders,” Nelson added. “Our budtenders learn what the customer is seeking, such as relaxation, pain relief or enhanced experiences, then find out whether they like to smoke, use a vape pen, consume edibles or utilize another method. Then we can offer recommendations best suited to the individual customer.”
The 2020 Solutions store on Pacific Highway is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
