Retail Cannabis Store Product Inventory
Inventory control and cash management is critical to all businesses, especially so in the cannabis industry. Due to the nature of the product you keep inventory of, there are nuances you need to be prepared for.
Our professional background in the retail automobile business helped us succeed in retail cannabis, but we also learned the do’s and do not’s of retail cannabis product inventory.
Don’t make the same mistakes we did.
Let’s get your inventory under control.
Cannabis Money Management and Finances
Unfortunately, banking may be an issue in your state likely will be for some time. Financial instituions are afraid to do business with people like us, due to the legal state of cannabis on a federal level.
Loans are not available via traditional lending sources, so “financing” will likely be restricted to savings, cashed in 401-Ks, loans from family, etc. We believe in the motto “hope for the best, plan for the worst”.
We can help you avoid the common financial pitfalls many experience when starting and operating a legal cannabis business.
Education is critical to the success of your business – for you, your employees, and your customers. An educated customer is one that is ready to buy, and we can teach you how we know best to educate your customers and patients.
Whether it is in the form of a blog, a newsletter, in store educational events, or just hiring good budtenders, you need to be able to do your part in teaching your customers and your employees about cannabis.
Retail Cannabis Store Security
Security systems, employee theft prevention, shoplifting prevention, and other best practices are important assets to your retail cannabis store.
Thankfully, the industry is experiencing fewer legal issues than many expected, but we continually strive to create an environment that reduces the chances of a system compromise to zero. We can help you develop systems and a culture that mitigate theft or break-ins as much as possible.
Dispensary Advertising and Marketing
Washington State has severely limited advertising as we know it; from outdoor sign size, content, location, and more. And, digital marketing via Facebook and Instagram is usually not possible – your account runs a high risk of getting shut down.
Your respective state will restrict advertising in similar ways, but we have many approved techniques that will build your brand, strengthen customer relationships, and foster customer loyalty.
