Canadian cannabis company Superette has partnered with designer Emily Robinson on a retail dispensary that resembles a retro grocery store, which was profiled by Dezeen. The unique shop is located in downtown Toronto, Ontario’s Stackt Market, which is a shopping complex made out of shipping containers.
“SuperMarket follows the blueprint of a quintessential neighborhood grocery store, from the interior design and customer flow to merchandising and product assortment.” — Emily Robinson Design via Dezeen
The shop features bright, retro colors – including a red and white checkerboard floor – vintage refrigerators, a rock-shaped gumball machine, and a Super Spin game that resembles something featured in a game show.
“There is no menu at SuperMarket,” the team told Dezeen. “Instead, customers shop with their eyes as they would in a traditional supermarket, with guidance from a budtender should they need it.”
Cannabis is displayed among custom, themed, props that would be found in a grocery store, including brightly colored boxes of cereal, fruits, and other staples.
“Superette’s whole retail vision is about applying traditional retail principles to cannabis retail — where it’s not being done — and merchandising cannabis like you would any other consumer packaged goods,” the team said in the report.
