KELOWNA, BC, April 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Marapharm Ventures Inc. (CSE:MDM) (OTC:MRPHF) (FSE:2M0) ("Marapharm" or the "Company") would like to provide an update on the Company's dispensary in Desert Hot Springs, California. The dispensary continues to increase sales since acquisition with weekly and monthly promotions. Furthermore, the implementation of a live inventory system has ensured accurate information is relayed in "real-time" to our existing patrons and the 3.5 million visitors to the popular Coachella Valley area.
The Company has been using unique promotions that have been extremely successful during the past six weeks of ownership. For example, the dispensary has partnered with adjacent retailers to perform cross promotions which have been well received by the community patrons and appreciated by the partner retailers. Two of our partner retailer promotions resulted in a 118% daily sales increase when compared to our daily average sales. However, the true strength of the dispensary is our staff. They continue to be an integral component of our success, building our reputation of providing superior service and product knowledge to our clientele and being a reputable business community member in the Desert Hot Springs area.
In addition, Weedmaps, in conjunction with the integrated MJ Platform inventory management system, has increased traffic by providing us the ability to give our patients and adult consumers (over the age of 21) easy access to the most reliable "real-time" information about our location, hours, specials, promotional days, strains, products, and reviews. Visit our website, greenleafwellnessdhs.com and click "Visit Us On Weedmaps" for more information.
"We will continue to develop exclusive promotions and special products which have proven to be well received by the "adult use" community of Desert Hot Springs and surrounding valley." Linda Sampson, CEO.
