the store was very similar to other stores of the same style i have been in, clean and open, many glass shelfcases to peruse, glass and product everywhere. the flower i purchased is above par, flavorful and potent (Durbana! mmm mmm), outdoor but wonderful none-the-less. the standout here was the budtender, seemingly the only one on duty, he apologized for the wait and offered us a $4.99 discount on a $5 pipe (legally can't be comp'd, but one cent is free in my book). he had a professional and genuine breakdown of the store and its contents, where each category of cannabis would be located, descriptions of the grow companies NGS purchases their raw product from and their philosophies, a detailed desription of the store's own grow, a tip that every budtender should know pretty much all of this stuff about all of their products, he had a soft slow voice that was easy to understand, he didn't rush or sweep us out the door, he was every bit the professional i would expect to sell me a car or a home. if america were filled with 'Elijah's it would be a smooth world for all. i cannot express how impressed i still am with his customer service, extensive and detailed product and company knowledge, and absolutely perfect professional behavior. i truly wish i had been able to record the entire experience to display as the perfect example of the way a customer should be treated for every business on this planet. 75 stars out of 5 for Elijah at Nature's Gift Shop in Pueblo, CO. i would have bought a tiny pebble to use as a screen in the glass from this guy, ice to an eskimo and an umbrella in the desert and all that. i will absolutely be back, and if Elijah isn't there when i get there, i'll go find him at the new job so he can sell me stuff there too.
