CORRECTION: A previous version of this article indicated that only one location in Waverly was shut down by the OCM, which was not the case as a total of three locations were visited by members of the OCM.

UPDATE (Aug. 21) — It was learned that two other sticker shops were shut down in Waverly last week in addition to Mile High Accessories IV.

Both BMILLZ and The Ground Up, located on Broad Street, were visited by officials from the Office of Cannabis Management and local law enforcement last week on Wednesday.

On Monday, Aug. 21, 18 News visited the two shops to confirm the visits by the OCM. The same signs and hearing dates were posted on the shop’s windows, just like the ones seen on Mile High Accessories IV.

For The Ground Up, a large ‘open’ flag was standing up outside the store with the door open, lights on, and staff inside.

When asked about why the shop was open despite the signs being on the door, a worker at the shop said they were selling off some remaining products, but they indicated that no marijuana was being exchanged.

At BMILLZ, the owner, along with another worker was outside informing customers that the shop is closed.

The owner told 18 News that they are complying with the OCM and keeping the locations shut down, but said that he has plans for the Waverly storefront, with changes coming soon.
