NUG Sacramento Voted “Best Place to Buy Cannabis”
by Sacramento Magazine readers
Diversified cannabis company’s flagship retail store earns award six months after opening
SACRAMENTO (September 18, 2019) – NUG Sacramento, the first retail store opened six months ago by NUG, the premier vertically integrated cannabis company in California, has been voted by the readers of Sacramento Magazine as the “Best Place to Buy Cannabis.” The award is part of the publication’s annual “Best of Sacramento” issue, which showcases top businesses, restaurants, breweries, wineries and other entertainment from Northern California.
There are 30 licensed medical dispensaries in the city and NUG Sacramento, which opened in Midtown in March 2019, is one of the newest. The store debut also marks a major milestone in California’s adult-use cannabis market, as NUG is one of the first brands to oversee its products every step of the way, from the cultivation and extraction to the in-store experience and customer relations.
“We’re so proud of NUG Sacramento’s success and well-deserved recognition for excellence,” said NUG CEO Dr. John Oram. “The positive feedback from Sacramento area residents is extremely encouraging as NUG looks forward to expanding our retail footprint in Northern California.”
The state-of-the-art store has been described by customers in online reviews as “beautiful,” “classy,” and “like a museum” with sales associates who are “kind and full of information.” The modern design of the 3,500- square-foot space represents a new model in cannabis retail that aims to normalize the experience, and is a collaboration between Chris French Metal, a firm specializing in highly crafted architectural metal, and Alexander Design. The shop also fits the aesthetic of Midtown Sacramento, an area which is experiencing revitalization including new bars and restaurants, live/work high-rises and general retail. Leading the knowledgeable and friendly staff is an all-women management team comprised of accomplished business professionals who have made great progress in establishing NUG in this new market.
“We’re thrilled that Sacramento Magazine readers have recognized NUG’s commitment to providing a sophisticated cannabis retail experience in a warm, contemporary space that welcomes customers, from experienced users to first-timers,” said Sandra Truitt, General Manager of Retail Sales. “We’re the new kids on the block but look forward to being part of the wonderful Sacramento community for years to come.”
NUG Sacramento features the brand’s portfolio of award-winning products including concentrates, edibles, flowers and pre-rolls, all of which have been developed at NUG’s world-class Oakland facilities through trailblazing R&D, extraction, distillation, and post-processing laboratories. The store also offers a carefully curated selection of products from NUG’s respected contemporaries. It is the first of three stores that NUG has planned for 2019, with additional locations opening in Oakland and San Leandro.
Sacramento Magazine’s “Best of Magazine” October print issue hits newsstands September 18th and will be available to read online. NUG Sacramento is located at 1918 16th Street, Sacramento, CA, 95811. Open daily 9am-9pm. For more information, visit nug.com.
