PITTSFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Marijuana dispensary, Berkshire Roots, in Pittsfield is taking steps to ensure their customers stay a safe distance apart.

The pot shop taped off the line outside and placed cones six feet apart to help patrons navigate proper social distancing. The store is also changing the way it does business. On their website, they’re asking customers to pre-order online and only visit when the store text messages you that your order is ready.

They also close early each night for deep cleaning.

Theory Wellness in Chicopee is enforcing the same rule. A 22News viewer sent a photo showing a sign posted on the wall. The sign encourages customers to stand 6ft apart and to also pre-order before coming into the store.
