Coastal, a California-based retail brand, opened its Concord, Calif., adult-use storefront and delivery service on Aug. 10.
The opening was commemorated with a ribbon cutting ceremony, which was attended by Concord’s Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Dominic Aliano, and other city officials and industry leaders, according to a release. Additional launch events for Coastal’s Concord location will take place in the coming weeks, with an official grand opening planned for Sept. 1.
“We are extremely excited and honored to be one of Concord’s first adult-use retailers and to bring our first-class customer experience to the community,” said Julian Michalowski, co-founder and CEO of Coastal. “As one of the only dispensaries in the region, we take our responsibility seriously. We believe in the importance of working together as an industry and are committed to being a thoughtful, trusted and responsible community partner.”
The Concord location marks Coastal’s 12th dispensary in California and will carry brands including Caliva, Jeeter, Deli, Fun Uncle, Heavy Hitters, and more, according to the release.
Coastal will also honor the life and work of longtime Concord resident and Coastal’s late Managing Partner Keith Burks. The company will recognize March 17, his birthday, as Keith Burks Day, with the yearly celebration including in-store events, educational seminars and community service projects.
“On behalf of the City of Concord, we are excited to welcome Coastal to the community,” Aliano said. “Throughout the licensing process, Coastal demonstrated they are experienced operators and committed to bringing cannabis to our city in a safe and responsible manner. We look forward to Coastal’s continued support to our city through volunteer efforts and capital contributions.”
