Mayor Franklin To Cut Ribbon At Everett’s Newest Pot Shop This Weekend

The first of three new marijuana stores authorized by the Everett City Council last October will have a grand opening this weekend. Here’s a press release issued for the event.

The shop is opening at the former Mari J’s Pot Shop in the Eastmont neighborhood.

Everett’s Newest Recreational and Medical Cannabis Retailer “The Joint” is set to host a Grand Opening and Ribbon
Cutting Ceremony at their newest location, located at 9506 19th Ave. SE, Everett, WA 98208. The weekend event will be held on Saturday and Sunday June 26-27 and kickoff with a 10:30am Saturday Ribbon Cutting and Community Commitment Ceremony, featuring Mayor Cassie Franklin and other elected officials.

As part of the ceremony, and in keeping with the tradition of other recent Everett Cannabis Store Openings, The Joint will be unveiling their community centered mission and vision statement to demonstrate their commitment to the Everett Community. Included in the unveiling, will be a check presentation to local area non-profits including Leadership Snohomish County, Cocoon House and Everett Music Initiative.

“We would love to be able to give back to every organization that is doing amazing work in our community, but as a small business that is just getting started, we are limited on what we can do right out of the gate,” said The Joint owner, Shaun Preder.

The ribbon cutting and check presentation will be accompanied by a Food Truck and a live DJ to keep a fun environment as customers come and check out the new location. The Grand Opening celebration will be continued on Sunday with a live performance by Local Top 40 Rock and Pop Cover Band, Bleeding Tree. Bleeding Tree plays a mix of Seattle Grunge Hits, Top 40 Dance hits (new and old), and heavy rock classics that provide a unique experience.

Editor’s note: The other two stores authorized by the City Council vote are in the permitting and construction phase. Public records show one location as the former auto dealership in the 4800 block of Evergreen Way and the other in the building next door to the Everett Police South Precinct on Everett Mall Way.
