Saturdays are the busiest day of the week at the cannabis shop.
I have to work every Saturday and most of my coworkers are scheduled as well. When the cannabis shop opens in the morning, there is usually at least one person waiting outside. Saturday is busy because it is the weekend, but it is also the only day during the week when we have a sale on every item in the store. All products are 20% off on Saturday. The sale includes all of the dried marijuana flower, vape supplies, concentrate, edibles, tinctures, and topicals. The store was filled with customers at lunchtime and two employees were on their break. There was a line of customers at the front door and the security officer was only allowing a few people inside the building at a time. There was a disturbance at the front door and I heard the security guard start shouting. Suddenly I saw a person coming through the door of the dispensary and he had a gun in his hand. The security officer told all of the employees to do exactly what the armed bandit wanted. The guy made us fill a bag with all of the dried marijuana flower on the shelf. The armed bandit got away with a ton of cannabis items. The police arrived almost immediately after the guy left the cannabis store and I am hopeful that they will be able to track down the perpetrator. It’s only been a couple of days, but no one from the store has heard any updates about the crime.
