Lit begins making deliveries
Marijuana consumers in Reed City, Evart eligible for service
EVART — Recreational and medical marijuana consumers in Mecosta, Osceola and Wexford counties can now purchase products without even having to leave the house.
Lume Cannabis Company, which operates the Lit Provisioning Center marijuana outlet in Evart, on Wednesday announced it would begin delivery service for pot consumers in 11 northern Michigan ZIP codes, including Big Rapids, Reed City and Cadillac.
"We are excited to announce Lume Delivery, our adult-use delivery service, is up and running in Evart," Lume President/COO Doug Hellyar stated in a press release. "Our top priority is providing an unmatched experience that makes it easy for our customers to access the broad variety of high-quality cannabis products we offer. Allowing customers to order online and have their order delivered to their doorstep will be a convenient option for customers and we expect it to be in great demand."
Here's how it works: Orders must be placed online, at lume.com/evart. Medical marijuana patients need to upload images of their Marijuana Patient Registry Card and government-issued identification. Recreational, or "adult-use" customers, need to upload an image of their government-issued ID, too. Deliveries are only being made to the address listed on the customer's ID card.
There are other requirements: a minimum purchase of $125, before taxes and delivery fees, is required. No cash will be accepted — only debit.
The full list of communities where Lit will deliver includes: Cadillac, Tustin, LeRoy, Reed City, Big Rapids, Rodney, Barryton, Hersey, Sears, Evart and Marion.
Hellyar stated that Lume — which currently also operates stores in Owosso, Honor and Kalamazoo — hopes to eventually offer delivery throughout the state.
"We strive to be the leading cannabis operator in the state, and that starts with providing top- tier products and services that meet the unique needs of our customers across the state," Hellyar stated. "We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to iron out the details of our new delivery service to ensure it is efficient and improves customer satisfaction."
