When Planet 13 opened in Las Vegas in 2018, few people besides co-CEOs Bob Groesbeck and Larry Scheffler believed that a 40,000-square-foot cannabis retail store could be successful.
It’s simply too big, the doubters said.
But almost three years later, the superstore has not only proven to be a winning concept, but it’s almost been too successful. At one point, patrons were waiting in line for 90 minutes to get into the building that doubles as both a retail space and an entertainment venue.
“The superstore is a game changer” for cannabis retail, Scheffler says.
