BelMar set to open largest marijuana store on Eastside

Bellevue cannabis retailer set to open new storefront in February.

Bellevue cannabis retailer BelMar is set to open their new and improved storefront in early 2018.

The original location opened in February 2015 and was the third cannabis retailer to open in Bellevue at the time. Almost three years later and over $15 million in sales, BelMar was due for an upgrade to adapt and meet the needs of a growing customer base and provide room for an expanding product selection.

The new location will have a more modern aesthetic than the previous location, hoping to attract working professionals in the downtown Bellevue area, according to the company. Located in Downtown Bellevue, the new location will be the largest cannabis retail store in the greater Eastside, with 5,000 square feet in total — almost double the size of the original location, according to a press release from the company.

The sprawling retail floor space creates a much more relaxed shopping experience, allowing customers to browse products at their leisure. However, for those who are still looking to get in and out quickly, the company will continue to offer online ordering with a designated express terminal.

BelMar will also continue to offer the Green-Elite loyalty program, which is the largest cannabis loyalty member program in Washington state with over 30,000 active users.

Customers will also find parking at the new location more convenient now that the retailer will offer a private (and free) covered parking lot with ample parking stalls.

The change of location and chic storefront aren’t the only adjustments this cannabis retailer has made; as BelMar’s management and product selection have undergone a major overhaul as well. Under new management with a strong background in cannabis retail experience and now offering a much wider selection of premium quality cannabis brands/products at competitive prices, the store’s overall business model has been upgraded.

BelMar is also now medically endorsed, which is fitting given the new location is in the Medical District of Bellevue, according to the press release. The new buildout has a private consulting room to ensure the privacy of patients giving it a true medical feel. There are currently four Department of Health-certified medical cannabis consultants on staff.

The cannabis retailer will have a soft launch in January and plans to have a grand opening at the beginning of February.

BelMar is located at 638 116th Ave. NE. For more information, visit Belmarstore.com.
