BelMar, a popular Eastside marijuana shop, will expand its retail presence when it moves to a larger storefront this month.

Bellevue’s third cannabis retailer when the store opened in February 2015, BelMar was due for an upgrade to meet the needs of an ever-growing customer base, according to regional marketing manager Rachel Emadi.

The new shop, located at 638 116th Avenue Northeast, is just a half-block north of BelMar’s original location, but customers will notice a markedly different shopping experience, such as a more modern and chic aesthetic; a sales floor nearly double the size of BelMar’s original store; an expanded product selection; and more customer parking, according to Emadi. Medical marijuana patients will be served by four Department of Health certified medical cannabis staff members offering knowledge and expertise in a private consultation room.

BelMar will have a soft opening at its new location this month, according to Emadi, and celebrate a grand opening in February.
