HUDSON – Hudson’s second marijuana dispensary will hold its grand opening this week.
Boston-based Native Sun Wellness will hold a grand opening ceremony at its new Coolidge Street adult-use dispensary Thursday, Dec. 10, according to a press release from the company.
Native Sun will be open Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to the company.
The company built its dispensary on an undeveloped plot of land on Coolidge Street near the Highland Commons shopping center, which is zoned for medical and adult use dispensaries.
The facility features a spacious retail area, ample on-site parking and an express counter for fast tracking customers.
The adult-use shop is Native Sun’s first dispensary to open. The company also plans to open a store in North Attleborough in 2021 and a 70,000-square-foot production facility in Fitchburg.
“When that facility is operational, Native Sun will be supplied with their own in-house products that will be grown, produced and manufactured by the brand,” according to the press release. “Until then, customers can expect a selection of uncompromised and carefully curated cannabis and cannabis products from premiere cultivators and trusted wholesale suppliers in Massachusetts.”
The town, and particularly Coolidge Street, was an appealing location for Native Sun due to its proximity to highly traveled roads, including Interstate 495 and Rte. 62.
Under the terms of the community host agreement Native Sun signed with the town, the company will pay Hudson $10,000 at the commencement of its operations and 3% of gross annual sales.
Native Sun joins Temescal Wellness, which opened on Coolidge Street in 2018. Hudson officials have also signed off on a special permit for Hudson Botanical Processing – a marijuana manufacturing facility – to operate on Kane Industrial Drive.
