This week is the 420 celebration week.
The actual 420 holiday is on Friday, but throughout the week we are going to have lots of sales and specials.
We’re going to have prizes and free giveaways. The dispensary is going to be busy all week, because of the sales and the holiday. There are lots of events all across the city. I gathered my stuff on Monday morning before the front doors opened. I told all of the budtenders that I was going to offer incentive bonuses to the crew members that sold the most items throughout the day. On Monday I picked our home brand pre-rolls. The winner of the contest was actually an employee that has only been with us for six weeks. She sold 74 of the pre-rolls and they are actually more expensive than some of the other pre-rolled marijuana joints in the dispensary. I didn’t really expect the crew to be so enthusiastic about the contests, but they enjoyed being able to win a prize and I found a way to motivate the staff to upsell on every customer sale. This week’s sales are going to be through the roof and that will help me earn my bonus as a manager. I get a healthy cash bonus if we meet or exceed all of the weekly sales quotas. It’s one of the reasons why I decided to get the crew excited. I believe in trickle-down bonuses. When I win, we all win. We are one big team and we are only as strong as our weakest budtender.
