It took a long period of time for online retailers to start offering live inventory for stores in our area.
You could order a certain product off Walmart’s website plus get it from their distribution center, but you couldn’t see if that same product was available in the local stores.
Home Depot is so scrupulous in this regard with their aisles featuring numbers plus codes at varying venues on the shelves to make finding a product extremely easy. I can immediately see whatever products are out of stock in our store plus then compare to stores within a particular mile radius. If I can’t find what I need, I can usually find what I’m looking for at a nearby store. I never honestly thought I would have this luxury with cannabis after our state passed legalization several years back. Most of the dispensaries have menus online that are updated regularly throughout the daytime hours as orders are made inside the store. It’s truly helpful because I can get an idea of what sort of strains are available before head over to the cannabis shop. Once you use cannabis for a good amount of time, you will easily gravitate towards particular strains with particular terpenes. If I can get OG Kush or Skywalker OG at a local dispensary, I know I will have a great experience. The other thing I appreciate about live online inventory is the ability to select products plus make orders through their cannabis website. Most of the dispensaries near me provide you with one of two options. The most speedy way to get your order is to actually head inside the store through the express kiosk line. Otherwise, you can pay a $15 fee to get your cannabis delivered right to your front door.
