Pot sales brings in more than $2.5 million in second week

Hampshire County

A full week of selling recreational marijuana brought in more than $2 million after the second week of sales, according to data released by the Cannabis Control Commission Tuesday.

The data shows that customers spent $2,586,862.86 at both NETA in Northampton and Cultivate Holdings in Leicester within seven business days from November 26 to December 2.

In the first week of business for both stores, which was only five days, both dispensaries made a grand total of $2,217,621.13, with 56,380 products purchased.

One NETA employee said he’s seen some of the traffic ease up since the opening.

“Definitely has died down,” said Adam Krol of Northampton. “In the beginning, I don’t think anyone knew how to handle it or what kind of attraction it would be. Police officers have done a great job making sure traffic is flowing.”

Customers bought 65,196 products in the second week, with the average product bought per transaction being 2.9 and the average spent per item was $39.68.

Since NETA and Cultivate both opened on November 20, they’ve made a total of $4,804,483.99 with 121,576 products sold.
