Southern California – June 2023 Newsletter

Greetings Retail Design Institute

Southern California Chapter Members!

Welcome to our June newsletter….and happy Summer! The Retail Design Institute Southern California Chapter has wrapped up our MASH Industries tour and is now looking forward to our July virtual event on Cannabis Dispensary design. Here’s hoping the only smoke happening this fire season will be coming from the vape pens!

Did you know the Southern California Chapter includes the regions of Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Hawaii? It’s true! If you know any innovative store experiences, retail companies, or consultants in any of these areas please let us know! We’d love to spotlight them in this series.


Virtual Event, Cannabis Dispensary Design

July 27, 3:00-4:00 pm PT

Come join us for a special virtual-only event on the hot new retail sector sweeping the nation – Cannabis Dispensaries! We will see some great designs and hear from insiders of the industry on how it all happens. From R&D through design development to finished construction and a grand opening, we will hear from a wide array of stakeholders.

Business owners, designers, merchandisers, millworkers and facilitators will discuss what sets dispensaries apart from the rest of the retail industry and touch upon the wide variety of trends we’ve already seen in this still young market. We will hear the challenges, unique opportunities and successful solutions to how a weed dispensary gets built.

Registration for this free event is coming soon – please mark your calendars.


Recap of our June MASH Industries Tour

Thank you so much to MASH Industries and all those who came out to our tour of their fabrication facilities in Buena Park earlier this month. It was a tremendous success as the whole group learned so much about the commercial millwork business and got to see first hand how retail fixtures are designed, produced, finished, and shipped out.

Here are some additional pics from the event, turnout was great and everyone was so engaged. Looking forward to more events like this one!



Retail Design Institute Southern California Chapter has a few openings on the board and is looking for a Chapter Secretary as well as a Communications Chair. The Chapter Secretary will be in charge of monthly meeting minutes and our communications and announcements through various platforms as well as being an active board member that participates in the quarterly board of directors meetings with the International Office. The Communications Chair will be heading our marketing and PR, managing and maintaining our web and social media presence, and collaborating with the Secretary on external/internal communications.

If you or someone you know is interested in either position, please drop us an email at
