STIIIZY DTLA could be mistaken for an art gallery, offers immersive experience
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The scene Saturday morning was pure excitement. On a nondescript block in downtown Los Angeles, nearly 300 people waited in a line that wrapped around a couple of city blocks. Drones flew overhead, scoping the scene. Valet parkers ran back and forth to keep up with the stream of customers coming to see the highly anticipated grand opening of cannabis and lifestyle brand STIIIZY’s first flagship store.
Joe Morehouse of La Puente was the first in line to see STIIIZY DTLA. He had been waiting in line since 11 p.m. the previous night for the Saturday noon grand opening.
“STIIIZY is a brand I’ve been a fan of for a while and the fact that they’re opening a store is pretty cool,” said Morehouse. “I saw pictures of the store and the inside looks amazing.”
The downtown Los Angeles location is one of several STIIIZY stores that parent company Shryne Group expects to open up and down California. The 6,500 square foot dispensary is located next to the Arts District and features a 29-foot mural by Los Angeles artist Retna, and pieces by other popular local artists Risk and Mr. Cartoon. As customers entered the sales floor, they walked through a narrowing tunnel with projection mapping and LED lights creating a kaleidoscopic effect. Inside the store, a proprietary pod system greeted the customers. There are four distinct pods in the store, each with a full selection of products – more than 55 of the most popular cannabis brands in California at different price ranges. The pods allow customers to shop at their own pace and avoid long lines by essentially offering four stores in one. Limited edition STIIIZY apparel, LIIIT flower and BIIIT edibles powered by
