I know full well that I am going to sound like a jerk, however it has to be said – the abundance of winos and vagrants in this community is adversely affecting my business.
I am not a hateful person whatsoever, and I do feel a great deal of sympathy for the local homeless population; but the way things are going, with some of these bums harassing my clients, I may end up on the streets myself.
When people come to my cannabis dispensary they need to feel safe and they need to be left alone. More and more vagrants have definitely started to hang around my shop, and a few of my loyal clients have started going anywhere else to buy their cannabis. I reached out personally to all of these clients, and asked them if they would be interested in a cannabis delivery service. If they were uncomfortable resting in front of my cannabis shop, then I could hire drivers to bring the products to them, instead, and everyone seemed interested, so I had another website built to allow for online cannabis orders, and hired a delivery driver. What started as a problem wound up being a bonus for my cannabis shop, because hastily my sales went up! It turns out that people will order a lot more cannabis from households then they are willing to buy in man. I don’t know why that is, but I can tell you that online cannabis sales are much higher than in-store sales used to be. I still have the vagrant problem to deal with, however at least my cannabis shop is thriving.
