Are Cannabis Dispensaries Open On Memorial Day? What About Deals?

The TLDR version: Yes, it looks like most pot shops will be open 

Beyond community events honoring fallen soldiers, the most common Memorial Day activities are probably deal-hunting or grilling and chilling with friends. All things that go well with weed.

As for getting what you need, according to a quick survey that we conducted, you’re in luck, because almost every place we contacted will be open. Some will have shortened holiday hours, kind of like most malls and other retail stores, but it doesn’t look like the trend is for pot shops to follow banks and public offices in closing for observance of the holiday.

Meanwhile, in clicking around and calling a dozen dispensaries across the state—from Canna Provisions in Lee to Caroline’s Cannabis in Uxbridge, and Cookies in Worcester to Up Top in West Roxbury—we came across quite a few deals. The latter, for example, has $1 prerolls when you spend $70 or more, and $1 eighths if your bill hits $120. Ayr literally has hundreds of products on sale for their spring cleaning campaign, but their Back Bay store is closed on Monday, May 29 (as is NETA Brookline, though their Franklin and Northampton stores will be open, as will Ayr Watertown). Which brings up another thing to note—while a few stores may be closed on the actual holiday, a lot of deals start today, and some even run through the end of next week.

If you’re looking for a veteran-owned store specifically, we always recommend CNA Stores in Haverhill or Amesbury; currently, Root & Bloom donates 50 cents to Veterans NorthEast Outreach Center (VNEOC) for every one of their products sold at either CNA location.

Wherever you are, call or check ahead with your local dispensary to see what they’re offering. And also to make sure that they are open, since we couldn’t call them all.
