A dispensary may be a place to buy weed but a dispensary is also a place where you can hang out. It’s a strange dichotomy of a place, but it works…inside. The aesthetic of the place depends on the vibe you want to set, and the staff, but that’s not the only reason why you visit. There are things to do inside, things to eat, and things to see.

The doorbell rang. The door opened to reveal a man in a tattered cowboy hat, a white shirt and blue jeans, holding a small bag of what appeared to be loose-leaf tea. “Hey there, bud,” he said, “you look like you could use a little pick-me-up. Got any of that tea?” “Uh, no…” “Aw, too bad. Didn’t think so. But I’ve got a friend who’s got some of the best weed around. You want some of that?”

Enter the new nostalgic playhouse of Superette. Photo credits: Alex Lysakowski. Canadian supermarket brand Suprette opened a store in the Glebe neighborhood of Ottowa this week, and frankly, we’ve never seen anything like it. Dispensary is a Willy Wonka-esque technicolor walk through a cannabis utopia. Boardwalk Carnival, a retro restaurant and cannabis shop, is a joint venture between founders Mimi Lam and Drummond Munroe. The creative duo opened three cannabis shops in the past two years and won a Clio Award for brand design. But at the Glebe Store, his imagination takes him to a whole new level. It even has a scratching post! This new store really shows the evolution of Superette as a brand and how we can continue to push the boundaries of our shopping experience. Whether it’s vintage dinettes or mirrored cabinets, the buyer’s journey will be unlike any other, Munro says. Let’s take a look at his unusual interior.

The Superette design team reversed the traditional color palette of white tile and red grout and created a striking red tile wall that pays homage to 1950s American culture and alludes to capitalist consumerism with a modern twist. word-image-10760 The characteristic flower wall offers a wide choice of fresh buds. word-image-10761 Superette Glebe has the largest cannabis menu in the world, so much so that the manufacturer made them sign a disclaimer. word-image-10762 The arcade-style claw machine is affectionately known as Super Claws. Shoppers can try their luck at winning unexpected prizes ranging from gifts from local designers and artisans to Superette items, rare items and big surprises. word-image-10763 Visitors can pass through a secret door hidden behind a refurbished antique soda machine, after which the shop gives way to an unexpected dream space in the middle, where three fairground-style mirrors distort reality as you walk through a tunnel to the cannabis shop with high ceilings. word-image-10764 The store offers a rich selection of gender-neutral clothing (including the new Super Strains collection), products and accessories from iconic brands like Sundae School, Pure Beauty and Yew Yew.
