The next driver arrived at 11:00 and I had just as many marijuana deliveries waiting to go
Fridays are the busiest day during the week for marijuana deliveries. We have other busy days throughout the week too, like Wednesdays when we have 20% off all cannabis concentrates. Concentrates are very popular with the young crowd. The crowd orders two or three packages at a time. When the orders come through the online system, they have to be filled quickly and then sent out for delivery. We frequently have 8 or 10 orders waiting to go out when the first delivery driver arrives at 9:00 a.m. We have a driver scheduled at 9:00 and then we have another driver scheduled to come to the store at 11:00. Usually we can send out all of the morning orders with the first driver that arrives. Unfortunately, the morning delivery driver was late for work last week and the whole day of deliveries were backed up because of it. When the driver arrived an hour late, I had 10 deliveries ready to go out. The next driver arrived at 11:00 and I had just as many marijuana deliveries waiting to go. It was one of the busiest Fridays on schedule and of course it had to happen on the day when I had a driver that was late for work. I didn’t think we were going to be able to get everything out that day, but the last deliveries were sent out at 11:00 and the drivers returned to the cannabis shop before closing. It might be time to think about hiring a third driver for Friday afternoons.
