Revolving Doors 

Smokane creates "greenway" for South Hill and I-90 smokers

Truck drivers. South Hill couples. Walmart shoppers. These are just a few of the clients Smokane — Spokane's newest recreational marijuana dispensary — caters to.

The dispensary had a soft opening March 17 and celebrated its grand opening April 17 in anticipation of the 4/20 holiday. Smokane Operational Manager Sothy Hul says the business has been embraced by the revolving door of customers.

"At first we didn't know what type of customer base was in this area," Hul says. "So far we're getting a lot of South Hill couples, truck drivers from the refill station across the street, manufacturing workers and people headed to the major shopping centers."

Inside, the store pays homage to its location with industrial, sleek design, featuring distressed wood floors, bright green walls, glass display cases and modern yellow bar stools.

"We tried to make the store blend into the surrounding area," Hul says. "We have touches of metal that's softened up with natural elements like flowers to create a space where you can freely move around, touch things and ask questions."

While the customers vary, their tastes collectively lean toward sativas, which dominate the menu. Smokane offers an extensive selection of edibles and tinctures, concentrates, pre-rolls, accessories as low as $10 pipes and $15 vape pens, and flowers for traditional smokers who like to look at it, touch it and smell it, Hul says.

"We try to offer something for everyone, but are staying out of the Spokane price wars," she says. "If a customer chooses to shop here it's based on our knowledgeable budtenders and the experience they provide for the customer.

"Marijuana is such a complex plant, but at the same time it offers the simplest pleasure. Our goal is to make sure that buying experience is also pleasurable."♦
