We’re excited to announce that our second provisioning center is now open in Watervliet!
Compassionate Care By Design received a warm community welcome during the ribbon cutting ceremony for its second provisioning center on February 21.
“We are very excited to be here in Watervliet,” said James Brobyn, CEO of parent company American Fiber, after he and Watervliet Charter Township Clerk Patt Bambrick shared ribbon cutting honors. “We’re proud to be part of such a supportive and pro-cannabis community, and want to thank Watervliet for giving Compassionate Care By Design such a warm welcome here.”
“From Watervliet Charter Township to the Chamber of Commerce, everyone has pitched in to make opening Compassionate Care By Design’s second retail home a success,” Brobyn continued.
The Watervliet provisioning center, located at 8277 Arnt Boulevard just off M-140 and I-94, reveals a new store design which Compassionate Care By Design will use for its future locations.
“It’s a very welcoming atmosphere,” said Chana Kniebes, head of the local Chamber of Commerce. “The people we’ve worked with are very friendly, helpful, and dedicated. They will be a great fit in our community.”
“We’re excited to have a cannabis provisioning center here,” Michelle Edmonds, owner of The Sidetrack Cafe II, added. “They are a welcome addition to our community.”
Asked why Compassionate Care By Design chose Watervliet as its second retail home, Brobyn was quick to reply: “We’re committed to making sure people who rely on medical cannabis have access to it,” he said. “The southwest corner of Michigan is under-served in that regard, and Watervliet is uniquely situated to provide easy access to medical marijuana patients from a variety of surrounding communities where legal cannabis isn’t currently available.”
Compassionate Care By Design began serving Watervliet through the provisioning center’s delivery-only service back in November 2019.
“Delivery works well for people with limited time and mobility,” according to Compassionate Care By Design founder Kristen Bearup, “But often, people need the one-on-one relationship to get the right information and the right products for their goals and preferences.”
“The Watervliet provisioning center gives us better opportunities to get to know our medical cannabis patients, provide expert guidance for those who need it, and gives clients access to a wide variety of product.”
The provisioning center hired new staff members from the surrounding area, all of whom have had rigorous education and training in all things cannabis, “so they are ready to answer questions and help clients find the products they need to live their best lives,” Bearup said.
Medical cannabis cardholders can enjoy special grand opening discounts and savings at the Watervliet location throughout the week. Specials are available in-store and customers must have their medical card from the State and drivers license to partake.
“We’re looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with the community of Watervliet and its surrounding areas,” Brobyn concluded.”Thank you again for the warm welcome here in Watervliet; we’re looking forward to growing together.”
