(WCVB Boston)   Most big-box "superstores" would think 16,000 square feet a bit on the small side, but apparently it's big enough to make a new pot store in Boston - the largest on the east coast. Spliffy tag is still misspelled   (wcvb.com) divider line

Damn, my husband and I missed the opening. We were there for the opening of the first pot store in Massachusetts - Cultivate. We were even on the local news for the opening. Good times.

I agree, It's Mr Splifferton, not Mr Spifferton.
Completely different meaning, and it sounds stupid.

Why do they need that kind of space? Are they selling a bunch of peripheral stuff you don't need a special license to sell, like hookahs and tee shirts and Phish posters and so on? Patio furniture with pot leaf emblems?

I've been in some big places, but most of them are around 80 percent empty space on the sales floor. Most of the products have to be kept behind the counter by law, so other than accessories, apparel, etc there's no reason to create displays or aisles or anything like that. And generally they don't because a lot of that stuff is expensive and easily pocketed in busier places where all the staff is stuck behind the counter.

So what you get is a big giant empty space decorated with weird stuff and an echo-y PA system playing music so loud you can't hear what the kid behind the counter said.

Yes, I'm old, I've come to terms with this.

"But we're trying to sharpen people's pallets,"

Why is there some sort of warehouse spearing event?  Ohh you mean palates! Silly reporter dictionaries are for you!

I read that as "pet store" and was very confused.

Meijer is something like 275000 square feet.

16000 is nothing.
