BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Since Cannabis City in Seattle ran out of pot last Thursday, Bellingham’s Top Shelf Cannabis has received hundreds of calls and visits from Seattle customers.

Store investor John Evich says they are getting 50 to 100 calls a day and 50 or more visitors a day driving up to buy pot.

 

He says the store will have more product on either Monday or Tuesday and they hope to keep a steady supply.

Top Shelf closed on Sunday to give employees time to rest.

Evich says this and construction are the only likely reasons why they would close.
