WHATCOM — One of the three 2020 Solutions Cannabis stores in Bellingham moved on Monday, Nov. 9, to 1706 Mount Baker Highway. Its owner sees it as filling a void for consumers between Interstate 5 and Nugents Corner.

  The store at 5655 Guide Meridian Rd. has now permanently closed. The new spot is at the intersection of the Mount Baker Highway with Noon and Van Wyck roads, site of the former Baker Bear Grocery and Gas.

  The retailer also has stores at 2018 Iron St. in downtown Bellingham and 4770 Pacific Highway near the Interstate 5/Slater Road interchange. All are open while following COVID-19 protocols.

  Founded in 2014, 2020 Solutions Cannabis had sales over $7.1 million in 2019. It was named Small Business of the Year last year by the Bellingham Regional Chamber of Commerce.
