“First off, I like how 'open' this location is (inside the door, it's just one large room)--and that there's somewhat of an entry way for customers to get themselves together (get out ID, get cash at the atm, browse catalogs and menus, etc.) before they approach the line if there is one (fairly rare--or maybe I've had luck time) or, more likely, the counter.
The staff are always helpful and super friendly. I like the $2 bill business--smart thinking on the owner, and the story behind it is cute,* assuming that it's true.
Their selection is not the widest, but I will usually find something that'll suffice :P
Bonus: they have a bike rack right out front (and it fits a 700c wheel!).”
“This shop has a great atmosphere and it is a nice neighborhood in Fremont Area, close to cool coffeshops and Fremont Brewing Company. The one drawback is that it is tough to find parking but don't let that deter you. Staff is one of the friendliest out there and there shop is organized nicely and easy to navigate. Go check them out!”
“I used to shop here on a semi regular basis. Until the following occurred my last visit:
I enter the shop. One employee beckons me over to her with an impatient hand gesture. I go over tell her what Im looking for. She makes a terse recommendation, then suddenly another employee whisks by and takes over for her. I guess she was new? So I follow this guy and tell him what I'm looking for. In the middle of asking a question the kid interrupts me, then tells me he will be back with me asap. then he proceeds to help another customer. So I look back for girl that was originally helping me and I see her and another male employee huddled together laughing and whispering about something. Not working. So I'm standing there. Waiting. and all I wanted was an 8th of sleepy Indica.
Finally as I'm about to just leave and find another place to get my 8th, another employee comes up to me and gets me what I want apologizing for the wait. Meanwhile the two whisperers are still whispering...
There are literally dozens of pot shops in Seattle. I will spend my money at the Shops that show they give a crap about me as a customer. That being said I will not be visiting Hashtag again. Nor would I recommend it to anyone.”
“Hashtag was the first recreational cannabis store I experienced after returning to the mainland from Hawaii. I was delighted to learn that recreational cannabis had become legal during my time away, and I could buy cannabis at one of many friendly local shops anytime I wanted.
I have since been back to Hashtag several times and have had excellent experiences. The staff was knowledgeable, took their time to address my questions, made me feel welcomed and their full attention was one me during our interactions.
The bud tenders knew their product and offered recommendations that proved to be very accurate and, for the most part, a good fit for what I was looking for at the time. I was particularly satisfied with their Blue Dream and White Fire strains. A great shop, conveniently located a few blocks from the center of Fremont, with a great selection of products and friendly who will help you hone in on the appropriate strains for each customer.”
