Kind Leaf is a true Oregon cannabis success story. Those in the know, understand the immense difficulties cannabis businesses face. The competition, burdensome regulations, egregious taxes, and lack of banking services put an immense amount of stress on cannabis retailers, more so than most other businesses. Through it all, Kind Leaf has been a true industry leader, putting the safety of the community first.
Now, Kind Leaf, the cannabis community, our nation, and the entire world face our biggest threat since World War II–the coronavirus (COVID-19). As usual, Kind Leaf is leading the way, putting people over profits. It was with the health of its staff, customers, our state, and nation in mind, that Kind Leaf made the tough, but right, decision to only provide pickup and delivery sales.
It is with a heavy heart that I post this.
A pandemic was never in our business plan, we are in unusual times, and it seems that everything that we know and find comfort in is being disrupted, the news comes by the minute.
COVID-19 is in our state, it is in our community and it is now affecting us all.
We are choosing to lead by example, and we are officially closing our doors to the general public as of tomorrow March 18, 2020 and moving to Leafly Pick up and home deliveries only. We have the goal of re-opening in four weeks on April, 18th 2020.m
You can come to Kind Leaf to pick up orders placed online, or you can have your order delivered to your home within city limits- must be a home address per state law.
Our intention is to protect the health and well-being of our staff and their families as well as the members of our community.
Stand with us and let’s all do our part to lower the curve, and bring this Pandemic to a close. Remember to practice social distancing, hand-washing and not sharing joints- so we can all get together and celebrate on 4/20/20
Thank you for supporting us from the beginning, we appreciate everyone we have met along the way. We hope to see you in again once this passes and the healing of our nation can begin.
With governments implementing more and more restrictions on people and businesses, it’s probably only a matter of time before dispensaries and retail stores are ordered to move to delivery and pickup services, but Kind Leaf deserves credit for being ahead of the curve. There could be a move soon to order the closure of cannabis stores completely, but we must mobilize to ensure that our community’s retailers are deemed essential businesses that can remain open, especially for the sake of medical patients. We will keep you posted on more important news.
The cannabis community can always trust Kind Leaf to have the health and safety of the public of heart. Please spread the word that folks can still enjoy the state’s greatest selection at Easter Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique, they just need to utilize online and pickup services. Safety first, out there. Be Kind to each other, it’s more important than ever before.
