Holidaze Season: Green Successes Cited by Most Cannabis Retailers On 4/20

U.S. cannabis retailers saw strong sales on April 20, the peak day for cannabis purchases, despite challenges from widespread e-commerce platform outages.

According to reports from retailers, point-of-sale (POS) systems, and e-commerce operators, there was a significant uptick in revenue and customer traffic over the high holiday weekend. Despite some glitches with the Dutchie e-commerce platform experienced by a minority of users affecting less than 20% of Dutchie customers, the majority of retailers managed the surge in demand smoothly.

Cresco Labs (CRLBF), operating under the Sunnyside brand, celebrated its sixth high holiday with record-breaking performance across its 72-store network. Cory Rothschild, president of retail for the Chicago-based multistate operator, reported substantial increases in shoppers, grams sold, and revenue without any major disruptions.

The Cannabist Co. introduced over 40 new products during their in-house 4/20 celebrations, attracting significant crowds to their dispensaries.

Similarly, C3 Industries, parent of High Profile Cannabis Shop, exceeded its sales predictions with a 40% increase in same-store sales across its outlets in several states.

Headset, a cannabis industry analytics provider, highlighted notable increases in sales for infused beverages and concentrates.
