“This place was awesome, until I walked in. Wasnt what I saw from the pictures. Dont get me wrong its not bad just didnt like the person behind the counter, she gave me the "I dont want to be here look" I know its been a long day, and Im new to Bellevue but your on the job. Beside that great product, good selection was high! Im visiting all the stores in Bellevue so im might come back if I dont like the others. Cheers”
I'm really sorry to hear about your negative experience at our shop. That's about as far from the experience that we're trying to create for our guests as you could get, so major apologies for not living up to our own expectations, and for not making you feel at home. If you do find yourself back at TNT, we would be happy to make it up to you! Feel free to ask for Jeff, Allie, or Chris. Thanks!
“Unlike Green Theory or BelMar, The Novel Tree handled the new tax law perfectly! All their displayed and advertised prices included the excise tax in the price. Don't be fooled by the other Bellevue shops "lower" prices, they almost certainly do not include excise tax, which is actually required by law (who knows how they are getting away with it). Can't say I am surprised since The Novel Tree is often one step ahead of their competition in pricing. And because their pricing is always a step ahead, I wished they would carry more of the higher end farms because they would surely set the bar on the pricing. Anyway, daily happy hour and great sales means there is always a reason to check in. Though I do wish the product was displayed a bit better and there were some smell jars. Overall, I'd say this is my go to spot in Bellevue.”
“The Novel Tree is my favorite store in the area, and I've been to all of them. Here you will find nice and professional staff (no bunch of punk kids running around here). They feature lots of really good growers, most organic, lots of sun grown. But you won't find the overpriced bud here (phat panda). More quality bud for your dollar and you'll have a smile on your face the whole time at the store!”
“Love this place. Super friendly and helpful staff. Bright and sunny location across from hater chicken. The budtender greeted me when I came in and asked me what I liked. Took me all around the store and showed me everything I asked about. He was super patient and not pushy at all. He was very knowledgeable and even tossed in free swag! Girls love swag. :)”
