PITTSFIELD, Mass. & BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Berkshire Roots today announced a partnership with international cannabis brand Cookies to add the Cookies Corner concept inside its flagship medical and adult-use dispensary in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Through its partnership with Cookies, Berkshire Roots will expand the options available to people who are local to Pittsfield and to those who visit The Berkshires on vacation, visiting one of the many art, music or theater venues or have second homes in the area. Berkshire Roots is already well-known as an award-wining cultivator and manufacturer as well as earning the Berkshire Eagles’ “Best of The Berkshires” award four years in a row. In addition, Berkshire Roots’ East Boston location, also an award-winning destination, will carry Cookies products and accessories.
“Berkshire Roots is continuously looking for the best-of-the best to offer our customers,” stated Berkshire Roots CEO, James Winokur. “While we create exceptional products, customers do ask us about carrying other brands and product styles. Cookies is the brand we are asked about the most, so being selected as the exclusive authorized retailer in The Berkshires is a great honor for us and will be greatly appreciated by our customers.”
Customers in The Berkshires and Boston will have access to a wide menu of popular Cookies strains as well as Lemonnade, Minntz and Collins Ave brands available in Massachusetts. Berkshire Roots will also carry a selection of Cookies SF branded accessories and gear which will be available at both retail locations.
“When we consider which retailers will carry our Cookies products and become a Cookies Corner, we look for retail operators that have a proven track record in their local market. Berkshire Roots is that partner for us in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and we are excited to open a Cookies Corner with them,” said Parker Berling, President of Cookies.
The Cookies Corner opened officially on October 24th at the Berkshire Roots Pittsfield, MA cannabis campus. Stop by Halloweed Weekend and check out the Corner, located at 501 Dalton Avenue, Pittsfield, MA.
