Harvest Redefines Dispensary Retail with Modern Design, Customer Service and Product Transparency
SAN FRANCISCO, March 16, 2016 /Weed Wire/ — HARVEST, San Francisco’s first boutique-style cannabis dispensary and private member lounge, offers a new style of shopping experience for those who are seeking a wide variety of high quality, chemical-free, tested medical cannabis products. Harvest opened January 2016 on Geary Boulevard in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond District offering expertly curated artisanal products sourced from California’s craft cannabis artisans. The retail store and members-only lounge interiors were imagined by top designers from San Francisco and Chicago, reflecting a completely innovative approach to cannabis merchandising and consumption.
Harvest serves a growing number of San Franciscans who are seeking a retail experience that transcends the counter-culture industry reputation. With windows open to Geary Boulevard, the bright and airy atmosphere features modern wood detail, contemporary lighting, polished concrete floors, and open shelving. Customers can freely interact with cannabis consultants and carefully chosen selections of cannabis flowers, concentrates, cosmetics, edibles, accessories, pet supplies and other products.
According to founder Marty Higgins, “The Harvest concept is dedicated to making every consumer experience with medical cannabis fun, safe and unintimidating. After two years of due diligence, absorbing the best practices in retail, hospitality and dispensary operations from around the country, we adapted these concepts to create a format that normalizes the retail experience for San Franciscans.”
Harvest offers the City’s first membership-only private lounge. Attached to the boutique is a separate space to work and relax while enjoying the store’s premium selections. Like-minded customers enjoy comfortable seating and work areas that offer the amenities of a modern social club.
Higgins adds, “We want to change the way people think about and consume cannabis. We’re connecting our patients to farmers and producers for transparency and consistency, delivering an open retail concept with products on the shelves and a customer first approach.”
Harvest on Geary, Inc. is a not-for-profit medical marijuana dispensary authorized by the City of San Francisco and operating under provisions of California state law. Only individuals with legally recognized Medical Cannabis Identification Cards or a verifiable, written recommendation from a physician for medical cannabis may obtain cannabis from medical cannabis dispensaries.
