BURTON, MI — A new dispensary offering medical marijuana has opened in Burton.
Bloom City Club at 4086 Davison Road in Burton, opened Monday, May 11, for medical marijuana curbside pick-up.
The business now serves medical patients only, but plans to offer recreational cannabis in the near future, according to a news release.
Bloom City Club in Burton is a branch of one of the “OGs” of Ann Arbor’s cannabis community, the news release states.
“The location in Ann Arbor is known throughout Michigan for offering a personalized and educational cannabis experience, while actively supporting the community,” manager of Bloom City Burton, Matt Vohwinkle, said in a statement. “We are excited to bring that same atmosphere, guest experience, and community involvement to Burton and Flint.”
Patients can order online or receive assistance over the phone. All new medical patients will receive a free pre-roll with their first purchase. Products include edibles, tinctures, concentrates, and over 20 different strains of flower.
“We will have an open shopping space for our guests to browse, with fully stocked product displays and local art. We are focused on educating people about cannabis, offering a large selection of quality products, and providing a personalized customer service experience,” Vohwinkle said.
Facing restrictions due to the stay-at-home order, Bloom City Club Human Resources Manager Angela Marshall said the company “In typical Bloom fashion,” looked on the bright side and used it as an opportunity to train Burton staff at the business’ Ann Arbor location.
“While we traversed the added complexities of opening during the COVID-19 restrictions, we had the pleasure of having Burton staff work side-by-side (at a social distance) with Ann Arbor staff,” Marshall said. “We even had the opportunity to test out their wireless technology to improve our curbside delivery in Ann Arbor.”
The new Burton location will open its lobby and have a grand opening celebration once the stay-at-home order is lifted, the release states.
