Bremerton marijuana shop opens Oct. 11

Legal marijuana will roll into Bremerton early this month.

Recreational marijuana shop HWY 420 plans to open Oct. 11, after receiving its retail license Tuesday.

The business is located at the corner of Charleston Beach Road and Highway 304, just outside Bremerton city limits.

The opening date is set, but owner Annette Atkinson said finding marijuana to sell remains a challenge.

“Will we have product when we open?” Atkinson said. “That’s a really good question.”

Regardless, HWY 420 aims to be more than a simple pot shop. Atkinson said the store will carry an array of paraphernalia, including high-end, artistic pieces.

“We want it to be a gallery of glass,” she said.

Atkinson said neighboring shop keepers and Bremerton business leaders have been welcoming. HWY 420 already joined the Bremerton Chamber of Commerce.

HWY 420 is the third marijuana retailer approved in Kitsap County (see embedded map of approved marijuana businesses). The first two licenses were issued in Port Orchard.

That means three of the seven at-large licenses that will be issued in Kitsap County are spoken for. Two licenses will also be approved inside Bremerton city limits, along with one on Bainbridge Island.

HWY 420 is posting updates to its Facebook page.

Pot shop coming to Bremerton? Sure looks like it…

IMG_6053We thought the little building at the corner of Charleston Beach Road and Highway 304 was being outfitted as a convenience store. Turns out it will be a convenient marijuana store.

IMG_6049A sign went up recently at the vacant Navy Yard City shop for a business called HWY 420. The state Liquor Control Board received a retail marijuana license application for a business of the same name.

The application hasn’t been approved yet, but an industry source says HWY 420 is poised for an October opening.

Some of the signage required by state law has already been posted on the windows, along with the hours of operation.

The store is located just outside Bremerton city limits. It’s next to the Bug Museum and Cliff’s Cycle Center.

HWY 420 could be the third retail pot shop to open in the county, joining the two approved in Port Orchard.
