Thank You, With Love
Let’s start off the New Year with gratitude and love. As we roll into 2023, we want to share how grateful we truly are to have what we believe to be the best team in the industry.
We recognize that our team carries great cannabis knowledge and possesses excellent customer service skills, but what really makes our team exceptional goes far beyond their professional talents.
Take a brief journey with us through the last few years.
Going back to March of 2020, together we were faced with a pandemic. This was something none of us could have been prepared for or had any experience with. During uncertain times, we had to learn how to navigate through uncharted territory, as a team.
As our whole world changed overnight, our team had to quickly adapt to constant changes in operations, a sharp increase in customer traffic and managing the fragility of our community during a pandemic. For each person there was mounting pressure and uncertainty – but it did not break us. The changing world that tested our patience, trust and will – did not divide us.
The pandemic made us stronger, together.
Building the Circle of Trust
We were faced with new challenges everyday and had no choice but to learn and grow, within ourselves and together as a team. Every single person on the team stepped up to the challenge.
Through humility, compassion and care, they looked out for one another. They supported one another through personal and professional challenges. New friendships were formed and old friendships grew. When there were tears, there was a shoulder to lean on. When there was fear, there was someone to talk to. When there was conflict, there was resolve. When there was doubt, there was someone who lifted them up. When one person needed to rest, there was always someone else to take the lead.
Everyone took turns working longer hours when others were out sick, sometimes for weeks. A cycle that sometimes carried on for months. Always putting their best foot forward, smiling for every customer that walked through the door. Even when they were tired and carried the weight of the world on their shoulders. They showed incredible strength within themselves and for each other.
The Heart of Canna West
While retail establishments usually see a high turnover rate, we’ve been so fortunate that our team has stuck it out together for years. We are so proud of our team. We are so grateful for our team. This team is next level and here is why they set the example for every industry.
They challenge and learn from one another.
They always make an effort to understand each other.
They support and look out for one another.
They listen to and communicate with one another.
They respect boundaries and speak up for each other.
They have been through it all together.
So when you stop by to shop at our stores please take a moment to recognize our staff. The person stocking the shelves. The person checking your ID. The person at the register. This is our Canna West family and each person is a genuinely good person serving our community.
They are the heart of Canna West Seattle.
Thank you Team Canna for all that you are and all that you do. Happy New Year!
