This Philadelphia cannabis dispensary’s layout and well-organized storage system saves staff time, simplifies inventory control, and helps ensure compliance.
The planning and design team for a new cannabis dispensary needed to convert a former bank building into an attractive and efficient dispensary. Aside from wanting to create an attractive space for clients to browse, they also needed to comply with a number of rules and regulations. Every ounce of inventory had to be accounted for at every step of the process, and no inventory could be left out on the sales floor at night.
One of the most important features of any cannabis dispensary is the vault. This is a highly secure area, usually on site, where product from the sales floor is stored overnight and where bulk items and infrequently accessed stock is stored.
They needed a way to manage the workflow surrounding product storage and dispensing in limited space, so they called on the local Spacesaver consultant for advice.
The local Spacesaver consultant provided an ingenious solution: a different Spacesaver system for each of two areas in the dispensary’s secure vault, and a bin system to store and transfer product between the two areas.
The fulfillment room is a small chamber in the vault where an employee fills and dispenses customer orders. A Spacesaver Lateral FrameWRX HD Storage System makes the most of limited space: the front shelving sections are mounted on carriages that move from side to side to allow access to the back row of stationary shelving.
The system keeps inventory organized and accessible, and it’s far more efficient than moving products every night. Because the fulfillment room is part of the vault, only the stock out on the sales floor needs to be moved and secured at closing time. Best of all, the storage systems optimize the dispensary’s floor plan and layout to create more space for customers to browse.
The clients are so pleased with how the systems are working that they’ve asked the local Spacesaver consultant to design storage systems for two additional locations.
