Spooky season isn’t just for children anymore. The last few years have seen a marked rise in sales of cannabis around Halloween. BLAZE Insights has shown our point of sale clients see an increase in sales starting on the 27th of October.
Here are five ways to make sure your inventory is ready for Halloween:
Learn to use the BLAZE Master Catalog to make sure your inventory is ready and available at every location. You can check or transfer inventory, see which products are moving, set pricing for each product across one or multiple stores in the same dashboard.
Insights Basic is live in your dashboard now. Very soon Insights Advanced will be released and you’ll be able to drill down into inventory reporting to help you maximize your profits during peak seasons. Schedule a demo to be one of the first to use Insights Advanced and take control of your data.
Staffing for Halloweed
Look back at your historical data and make sure you have enough staff on hand. You can use the Insights Advanced chart to view transaction time by the hour that is color-coded against transaction volume to make sure you are fulfilling your customer’s needs.
Make sure that your loyalty programs and customer retention software is ready for the influx of shoppers. This is a great time to train customers and your staff to ensure repeat business throughout the year.
The BLAZE point of sale has a Delivery and Dispatch model made for both styles of cannabis delivery. Make sure your drivers are supported and have enough stock before they hit the road.
Grab the candy, some bottles of water for customers in case of long lines and prepare yourself for the monster invasion.
