new-meets-nostalgia for olean's of northport

OLEAN'S / July 30th, 2021 / NORTHPORT, MI

situation /

Pioneering the first recreational cannabis retail shop in Leelanau County, owners David Caudill and Tyler Rink had a discerning vision for Olean’s. Both boasting extensive backgrounds in design and retail, they were looking to create a space that was hospitable, modern, and effortlessly weaved into the communal fabric of Northport. Repurposing a weathered outbuilding as the outer shell for this eclectic cannabis outpost, Olean’s called upon Britten WoodWorks™ to build out an interior befitting their nostalgia-meets-modern Northport vision.

Heading up the Olean’s interior build-out, Tyler Rink envisioned a warm, welcoming space within the intimate 800 square foot interior. Painted the same placid blue as the exterior, the intent was to create a calming and comfortable experience from start to finish. Working with Rink’s vision, WoodWorks™ manufactured the check in desk, cash wraps and wall cabinetry. Keeping the notions of curated, rather than overwhelming display, WoodWorks™ worked up built-in cabinetry, gently lit with 3,000-watt light fixtures to highlight the selective product offerings. In addition to customer-facing features, WoodWorks™ also built-out the employee breakroom with a similar focus on comfortability. Adapting the owner’s design into reality, Britten transformed Olean’s from an old outbuilding into the quaint, apothecary experience that Rink and Caudill envisioned.

Working closely with owner Tyler Rink and moving quickly, WoodWorks™ helped make Olean’s a reality as the first functioning cannabis dispensary in Leelanau County in record time. “I feel super blessed to be able to create something world-class with local tradespeople who fit us in here and there” noted owner and designer Tyler Rink to the Leelanau Ticker, “There is world-class talent here.”
