THETFORD TOWNSHIP, MI — A local dispensary moved up its date to begin home delivery amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Freddie’s, located at 10092 N Dort Highway, started home delivery Tuesday, March 31, for both medical and recreational marijuana products, the business announced in a news release.
Michigan marijuana shops may remain open during the COVID-19 coronavirus stay-at-home order issued Monday, March 23, by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Marijuana Regulatory Agency has said.
“Customer service is our number one goal at Freddie’s, so we accelerated our plans to begin home delivery,” Nicole and Barry Goodman, Freddie’s owners said. “During these trying times we are doing everything possible to make certain the public has ready access to the marijuana products they use either for medicinal or recreational purposes.”
Orders must be for $50 or more and there is a $6 delivery charge. State mandated limits 2.5 ounces of marijuana or equivalent product per day. The customer placing the order must be the one receiving the order when the delivery is made.
Deliveries will be within three hours of placing an order but must be completed by 8 p.m.
“Since we began curbside service for those ordering online or by phone the response has been fantastic, but we saw the need to expand the options for customers,” the owners added in the statement. “For many of our customers, especially those requiring medical marijuana, the ability to leave their home is limited. Home delivery solves that problem.”
Delivery is initially available to customers living in the following zip codes:
- 48415-Birch Run
- 48420-Clio, Mt. Morris
Those who order are required to provide their name, address, phone number and drivers license, state issued identification number or medical marijuana card information.
Customers are asked to go to the Freddie’s website or call 810-547-7276 to place an order. It is quicker to order online than call, according to the release.
