Today we had the pleasure of having a meeting with MP Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg, we are very thankful to have the time to raise our issues we have come across since opening and was very inviting to hear that he had been following our journey in the media.
Our main concern and daily issue is the fact we still do not have the facility to take card payment within our shop, next being the struggles we have with advertisement being mainly with Google and Facebook.
After explaining the first basic steps of opening a new business such as getting a bank account or a card machine was never something we could of possibly prepared for as a legal business.
We went on to further to explain the CBD industry already deals with alot of prejudice opinions so explaining to our customers that we only accept cash does not give off a good impression.
Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg explained he can help us in terms of bringing up the issue with regards to the bank regulations, the fact we are of a completely legal status and have all the evidence to prove this and yet still unable to obtain the basic need to receiving card payment can be addressed.
Unfortunately Google and Facebook generally have their own regulations so we can only continue pushing and fighting with regards to advertisement and hope they begin to make changes.
We will continue to keep you all updated on our journey and let’s hope Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg raises the main issue for us to see some changes within the CBD industry.
Again, we thank Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg for his time and making us feel happy in the fact something needs to change due to our legal status.
Thank you everyone for your support.
