I really want to like this place but it seems they go out of their way to make it hard. They do have some of the best prices in town but you get what you pay for in atmosphere, product, and service.
They have such arbitrary rules and never communicate them but will give you a bunch of attitude if you don’t just automatically know their new rules. The rules are often things that ONLY Arbor Side does for whatever reasons as well. I understand that state regulations and LARA change rules but Arbor Side always seems to be out in left field with their rules compared every other dispensary in the A2/Ypsi area as they will enforce rules that no other place does.
The receptionists are often rude and short width you too - not all of them but way too many of them. It’s actually a joke among friends that they have good prices but you have to make up for it with the rudeness. Thankfully the budtenders provide better service for the most part.
I have also felt shafted on several occasions here, unfortunately. Last time I went in, I got a vape pen recommendation because what I wanted was out. I was promised it would be fire and the pen didn’t even work. I’ve also purchased flower that was on the top shelf when I got it and then I see it moved to mid a week later. And, their pre-rolls canoe about 85% of the time when smoking them.
I really want to like Arbor Side, but I leave disappointed many times and going there is often a frustrating experience overall. I will still go there to pick up 1-2 things on special as they have great specials and prices, but aside from that, I have been avoiding going there for my mainstays.
