Aloha to you all and happy holidays! Our apologies for the time in between blog posts. Don’t worry though we have a good excuse as we have been hard at work in preparation for the grand opening of Pakalolo Oceanside in downtown Anchorage. When will it open you ask? Well let me put it like this… The opening day is so close we can almost taste it!
It has been a marathon of one task after the next as we inch and crawl closer to the green light at the end of the tunnel. There is a ton that goes into opening any business but a cannabis business has a few (hundred) extra hoops you need to jump through before you open the doors. As we put the finishing touches on the remodeling of the building we are simultaneously going through a handful of inspections required by the state. We expect to have the final inspection done sometime next week and if all goes as planned Pakalolo Oceanside will be open in merely a matter of days!
We do not yet have an exact date, based on needing to get through a couple more inspections. As soon as we do, you can read it at the Pakablog first. If you have been in Anchorage in the last month or so (or follow us on Instagram) you may have seen our bright neon Pakalolo sign glowing above our new location at 735 W 4th Avenue right next door to the Pioneer Bar and sandwiched between two of Anchorage’s top restaurant/breweries with 49th State Brewery right behind us and Glacier Brewhouse right in front. It is a beautiful sight to behold as it marks the beginning of an entirely new chapter as we begin to serve the Anchorage market. Here’s some very awesome pictures to hold you over.
We wanted to give a special shout out to our partners in this endeavor who live down in Anchorage. They have been putting in work around the clock with us to get the building remodeled and ready for state inspection so we can hit the market with a splash. As you can see from the pictures above they have done an outstanding job getting custom wooden display cabinets built as well as the square shelving on the wall for our product. It’s got the Pakalolo vibe to a whole new level and we are beyond excited to open up to the public. Opening announcement coming soon…
Mahalo for stopping by to chat with us. Remember to check back to the Pakablog for that opening date and most of all… Get ready Anchorage!
