Camden now has a dispensary for medical and recreational marijuana inside a neighborhood pharmacy, offering customers one-stop shopping and home delivery.
It is believed to be the first dispensary in New Jersey’s growing cannabis industry to be inside a pharmacy, said Anthony V. Minniti, owner and operator of Bell Rexall Pharmacy.
The dispensary operates in its own section within the pharmacy on the corner of Haddon Avenue, a mainstay in the community for nearly a century.
Customers can order online and pick up their product in a secured area at the store where they must show identification. Buyers older than 21 can also order at a digital kiosk in the reception area with tables, chairs and love seats. Soft music plays throughout the space.
“We wanted to create a whole experience that was different from other dispensaries,” said Nichelle Pace, vice president of the Camden Business Association, who designed the space.
