After 420, the rest of the month at the cannabis shop is usually certainly slow.
Most people spend all of their currency on the 420 sales! All of us have a good deal every year and so do the other local shops. This year I wanted to try something different. I told the staff that the people I was with and I were going to have a contest from the 21st of March until the end of the week. The winner of the contest gained a $200 gift card. I listed all of the budtenders on a whiteboard and the people I was with and I kept track of the sales afternoon by afternoon. I didn’t assume if the staff would get interested or not, so I was actually surprised when they showed good interest in the contest. I l received a lot about my staff that week. I had the highest sales out of all multiple of the branches of this cannabis supplier and my store is located in the smallest city. My boss wanted to assume what I did differently and I told him about the unique contest, however he agreed it was a nice method to offer an incentive to our employees and felt it was a contest that the people I was with and I should continue every week. The prize isn’tquite as large, however each month the staff gets gleeful when they assume the contest is about to begin. It’s been a good way to boost morale inside of the cannabis dispensary and it is also boosting sales. I wish I had thought of this method years ago. When the staff has a competition, sales in the cannabis shop are constantly higher.
