SOUTHAMPTON – A recreational cannabis dispensary called Dreamer Cannabis has opened as the first and only licensed dispensary in the town of Southampton.
Located on 15 College Hwy., Unit G-2, the dispensary began when current Dreamer owner Volkan Polatol reached out to Kevin Perrier, the president of Five Star Building Corp., about the possibility of Five Star building a dispensary in Northampton and in Southampton.
Perrier ended up partnering with Polatol on both dispensary endeavors. Five Star built the Dreamer dispensary and Southampton, and is currently working on building the Northampton one, which is called High Five. They are building a manufacturing location in Easthampton, as well.
“We started this in July of last year in terms of design, licensing, and special permits with the town,” said Perrier, with regard to the Dreamer project specifically. “It’s just a really lengthy process, mainly with the Cannabis Control Commission (CCC).”
After going through the special permitting process with Southampton at the end of the summer, construction began in September and continued through the end of the year.
“It’s a pretty warm and inviting interior,” said Perrier, when describing the store. “I think it’s something different than we’ve seen at other
