Xander’s Green Goods – Tacoma, WA
Since 2010, 3111 S Pine Street has been a thriving hub of cannabis culture that started in the medical scene and evolved into present-day Xander’s Green Goods. Store Manager Jeff Mullins has been there every step of the way and truly embodies the Xander’s spirit; his genuine enthusiasm for helping people is infectious, and evident in how his budtenders make the “guests feel like family,” according to Mullins. Note that he uses the word guests, not customers. It’s hard not to feel welcome when the staff treats you like an old friend.
The store recently went through an extensive remodel, which created a space easier for guests to navigate. With a large sweeping counter, the Xander’s space is open and inviting. Guests can watch the budtenders work, similar to an open-air kitchen. This transparency gives guests the opportunity to interact more comfortably with the staff as they tailor their experience. “I only have two expectations,” says Mullens, regarding his staff. “That they get to know the customer’s name and what they like.” This personal attention, combined with an extensive knowledge of cannabis, is the one-two punch of the Xander’s Educated Sale.
One of the primary missions of Xander’s is to “take the spirit of Washington all over the country and the world,” and they accomplish this by exemplifying what Mullens calls the “Washington experience.” He believes Washington state is a great place to spread the positive cannabis culture that Xander’s exemplifies. Orbit Holdings, parent company to Xander’s, is planning to invest in more stores as new markets become available, so it’s only be a matter of time before the “spirit of Washington” goes coast to coast.
