Kemp will be joined by former Supersonics Teammate Gary Payton on October 30, where the two will cut the ribbon to officiate the grand opening.

Shawn Kemp’s Cannabis will be located at 3035 1st Ave near the Climate Pledge Arena and Space Needle.

Kemp is partnering with industry veterans Matt Schoenlein and Ramsey Hamide, co-founders of Main Street Marijuana — which has remained the number one cannabis retailer in the state of Washington since 2014.

“My name is on this company and I have worked hard to bring Shawn Kemp’s Cannabis to fruition,” said Kemp in a press release. “I want to provide nothing short of the best selection, customer experience and prices in Seattle. I have incredible partners in Matt Schoenlein and Ramsey Hamide to make sure we deliver on that promise to our customers, who are our top priority.”
