Marijuana retailers prep for shoppers by hiring staff, keeping COVID safeguards

Planet 13 in Las Vegas set sales records on 420 this year

With more than 100 million Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, marijuana retailers are adding employees and overhauling their operations in anticipation of more foot traffic inside their stores.

They also are reassigning existing staffers to new jobs as well as rolling out technology to accommodate an increase in customers walking in their stores – though they remain mindful of the potential health risks tied to the pandemic.

Las Vegas-based Planet 13, for example, has seen a boom in sales after the reopening of casinos and entertainment in the city and surrounding areas.

The retailer announced Wednesday morning its April sales totaled $10.7 million, virtually matching the $10.8 million recorded for its second quarter of 2020.
