Interviewed: Raffelina Reyes, A.K.A. Raffe Gypsy Greens Manager – Chehalis
How would you describe your store?
We are a recreational cannabis shop that is building its 420 family in the community.
What is your specialty?
Gypsy Greens’ specialty is our customer service. We are [members of] a team who pride ourselves on customer service and putting smiles on our customers’ faces. We listen to our customers’ needs, and together we can figure out what best product fits for their individual lifestyle.
What do you offer consumers/clients that others don’t?
Gypsy Greens has so many specials to offer from daily to weekly promotions. [Such as ] Daily $6 Joint, Wax Wednesday [and] Shatter days (Saturday sale on oil/wax). We also have Toca Thursday and Stoner Sunday at our Chehalis location only, [and] we keep up with our WeedMaps menu so that our customers know what our daily inventory is.
What words of advice would you offer anyone seeking to enter the world of cannabis business?
My advice to anyone who would like to get into the cannabis industry is to be passionate and honest about you. Educate yourself, and don’t underestimate all the handwork and common sense that you will need to be a positive person in the cannabis industry. A “stoner professional” is the term I use to describe my professional status in the cannabis industry.
What are the goals and vision moving forward for your company? Where do you see your company in five years?
My vision is to allow my company to continue to grow in a positive direction. I would love a bigger space so that I can give my 420 family the best selection a shop can has to offer.
What do you hope to accomplish in the cannabis industry?
It’s simple—I want to have the number one shop in Washington.
