Worcester County residents will soon be able to have cannabis delivered straight to their door.
Major Bloom, a Worcester dispensary located at 76 Millbury St., will begin its full delivery service on April 11, bringing new jobs to the area and the Massachusetts cannabis industry closer to the roots of the legacy cannabis market, the dispensary said.
Delivery, for a $10 fee, will be available within a 20-mile radius of its Millbury Street location for customers who are making purchases of at least $100. Orders for more than $300 will be delivered for free.
“Traditional weed smokers are not used to coming into retail spots,” says Ulysses Youngblood, the company’s president and co-founder. “It’s important to reach people at their homes and make them feel comfortable.”
As a soft launch of the delivery service, the dispensary is now making deliveries from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10. Starting April 11, regular delivery hours will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The dispensary will have two cars making deliveries and expects to be able to make 50 deliveries per day.
Customers can place delivery orders through the Major Bloom website.
