Kalamazoo-based Compassionate Care By Design’s newest medical cannabis provisioning center, currently under construction in Watervliet, will begin serving area clients by the end of February, a company spokesperson announced today.
The facility, located on the north side of exit 41 off I-94, has been under construction since November 2019, according to Compassionate Care By Design’s founder Kristen Bearup.
“There is a lot that goes into opening a new provisioning center,” Bearup says. “This one is exciting because the interior design is the first to reflect the new look and feel of our future stores.”
“It’s important to us that our facilities reflect our brand values of purity, strength, sustainability and individuality,” Beaurup continues. “We want people to feel welcome and relaxed the moment they walk in our doors.”
When asked why Watervliet was chosen as its second retail home, Bearup is quick to reply. “Our mission is to make medical cannabis readily accessible to the people who need it,” she says. “The Watervliet location is ideally situated to provide medical cannabis products to an under-served area of our state.”
The business climate in Watervliet is right, too, according to Bearup. “There is a great sense of teamwork and support for local businesses in
Watervliet. We’re excited to be entering such a supportive business community.”
Compassionate Care By Design has been delivering medical cannabis to the Watervliet area since the opening of its delivery-only service in November 2019. “That’s a great convenience for people who have limited time or limited mobility,” Bearup says, “but there’s nothing like getting to know your clients, neighbors, and fellow business owners face to face.”
The provisioning center’s grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on February 21 from 9 to 10 am. Area residents are welcome to attend.
Medical cannabis cardholders can enjoy special grand opening discounts and savings throughout the grand opening week.
