In an interview, Frankel stated that she wants her store to be a “country-inspired cannabis boutique store,” claimed an online source, Mass Live.

According to Google data, mobile page speeds take an average of 15 seconds to load. That number could have serious consequences when you consider that Akamai’s The State of Online Retail Performance study found 53 percent of mobile site visitors leave a page if it takes longer than three seconds to load. For retailers, a one-second delay in mobile load times can impact conversion rates by up to 20 percent. The longer the load time, the higher the bounce rate, and the less time a shopper will spend on a retailer’s website and/or app. This means retailers are losing the opportunity to expose shoppers to more merchandise and ultimately convert those visitors into buyers.
