Stash & Co. Recreational Cannabis, an independent store in Ottawa, has launched its contactless bike delivery service. Customers can order cannabis goods online and have their products delivered within 20 minutes or picked-up curbside.
The option for pickup and delivery opened up when Ontario passed an Emergency Order as a measure to protect consumers during the COVID-19 outbreak while ensuring they maintain access to cannabis.
“During this unpredictable time, it’s important that everyone follows social distances protocols and stays at home. We’re promoting this movement by offering a bike-courier delivery service, allowing customers to pay online and with the aim to deliver their order within twenty minutes.” says Joe Glynn, general manager at Stash & Co. “We owe it to our team for adapting so quickly and staying so determined to provide our community this service. This really is a ground-breaking moment for the cannabis industry in Ontario.”
The company has also been offering an increased COVID-wage rate of an additional $3 per hour and has supplied meals to ensure their staff is taken care of during the pandemic.
