My first visit to one of Maggie's location. I'm really "STOKED" that I have an avenue to leave my "feedback" about the shop, the staff, and my experience. Overall...I'm EXTREMELY impressed. I'm closing in on 60 years old, an old hippie who grew up in Hawaii. "Organic" has been my creed for as long as I can remember, and that is what drew me to Maggie's Farm. Very impressive selection....extremely friendly and knowledgable staff. Good prices to boot. Just take pleasure in knowing you are providing for your needs "organic" products. This will be my one-stop-shopping from here on out!!
Tried to shop at Marisol Theraputics on Jan 1, 2014 (the BIG day) and have never encountered a worse company. Utterly incompetent and callous to their customers, both medical marijuana users and recreational users. I'm never going back. And when they go out of business it'll be a public service.
Got there at 12:50 pm on January 1, the first day retail pot was legal in Colorado. Marisol got their license to sell recreational pot well in advance so they should have been ready for the influx of customers. I got in an outdoor line I estimate to be about 120 feet long, with I'm guessing 200 people. Though I couldn't see how many people were lined up in the store. I waited over 4 miserable hours in the cold and wind in a line that barely moved, until I got close enough to the store to look in the window and see why the line barely moved.
Marisol only had one cash register active. It appeared that they only had one employee waiting on the one person at a time that could be accommodated. A second register at a separate counter went unused until the occasional medical marijuana customer came along (more on that later). There were many more Marisol employees but they were standing around looking bored and doing nothing. If they were at all concerned with the hundreds of people who had been waiting hours and hours in the cold it wasn't apparent. I could see thru the window that there were around 75 people packed into the store looking furious.
From that point I was 15 feet away from the front door. It would have taken another hour to progress to the front door, and--according to the store security guard and a man in front of me who gave up and left once he finally got into the store after 5 hours--another 2 to 3 hours until I could have bought something. Once I realized that the excessive wait was due to the store's incompetence and lack of planning I decided that I was unwilling to give this crummy company a penny of my money so I left. I was exhausted from the 4+ hour wait. Still I left not because of exhaustion or the additional wait, but because I decided to boycott Marisol.
But wait there's more. I just wanted to buy recreational pot. Marisol made their customers for medical marijuana wait outdoors in the same freezing eternal line. I was standing beside a cancer sufferer who had to keep getting out of line to puke. And after 4 hours a man about 15 feet in front of me, almost to the front door, complained to an employee and at that point was finally allowed to get out of line and go to the medical counter to get what he needed. He was clearly pissed, and for good reason.
Marisol's callousness was just appalling. They could have had signs up directing medical patients to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have had employees come outside to announce that medical customers could go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers telling medical customers to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers with their product selection so people could make their choices in line and decide what else to get if the store ran out of some products. They could have done countless things to be more efficient and less callous, but they didn't bother. Hell, some shops even had propane heaters so the people outdoors in line could be less miserable. Not Marisol. Nope. Screw the customers.
A lot of people around me left in disgust without ever getting to buy anything after we got a look into the store and realized that there was only one employee running one cash register. A lot more people vowed never to patronize Marisol again. I'm one of those people.
I've been a member here for 2 or 3 months now, and I have been a card holder since Feb '13, so I've been to several dozen dispensaries. Saskia, Mindy and the other staff are so pleasant and attentive, they make it a pleasure to go to the store. I have only shopped at the Powers location since it's only 2 miles from the house. I specifically logged on today to mention three things: Killshot, in-house-edibles, and their concentrates. I didn't realize it until I went back to the store to comment on how kick-ass the Killshot I got was, that it had recently won The Hemp Connosseur Magazine's "Connosseur's Choice" award November '13! I knew it was good, but not that good! My tolerance has been crazy high thanks to the potency of The Canna Center's meds, but this killshot bud felt like I smoked a fatass bowl of bubble hash. They just started making these little peanutbutter/choc balls, they say they are like 88 active mg's, but they felt more like the 200mg Budha bars I've been eating. I had one early morning around 7, then ate the second one around noon, and was giggly and euphoric ALL DAY. Lastly, their Super Lemon Haze (which I also found out won an award at that same event "Patient's Choice") is uber-potent. I use it in my "Higher Altitude" e-pen (I don't think they sell them there, but they probably should look into it) and it works like a champ for ultimate discreetness around my teens, or when it's too cold/windy to smoke outside in this Colorado weather. I love this place! I've watched their glass, t-shirt and other inventory double or triple over the past few months. If you haven't been in a while, you should def. go back.
Best bar on the north side of town, just had a total makeover.
Good place to shop for some home supplies when living in Falcon, CO.
Chef Paul creates wonderful dishes, I never had a better steak.
The above reviews crack me up, some rang true BUT... It's NOW NEW OWNERS.
So give it another try and I promise you won't be disappointed.
I am sorry that you are not happy with Maggie's pricing at the Canon City location. We appreciate your comments. We are working to ensure that after the first of the year Jan 2014 that our pre tax price and specials are the same at all of our current and soon to be expanding locations. Our past discrepancy between stores in pricing and specials has been due to different tax jurisdictions in which we operate. Our goal is consistent pricing throughout all of our centers.
You also addressed some concerns over the USDA organic certification. Thank You.
Since marijuana is still not federally legal, there is no USDA ORGANIC certification... That's why we have become certified by Clean Green which mirrors the USDA standard for produce.
WHEN USDA does endorse organic marijuana, we will not have to change anything to become certified, as organic marijuana.
Its very important to us, so much so that we invite you to visit our website at maggiesfarmmarijuana.com to learn all about this exciting program to insure you of the quality of our product,
and hopefully of yours too as we hope you'll try Maggie's Farm again soon.
Something happened to this place. They had a menu change that dumped some good dishes - such as lemon scallops - and generally lost the items that had the freshest tastes. Add medium/high prices in comparison with other Chinese food places in town and you have a recipe for mediocrity.
P.F. Chang's restaurant in Colorado Springs used to be great in service, atmosphere, and food but it's going downhill fast. It's has always been a bit pricey compared to other Chinese restaurants. The food is now WAY over salted/seasoned with smaller portions at a higher price too! The service is now sub-par at best and if need anything more than one drink refill or your check good-luck in getting service. And lastly, the atmosphere is now a trendy stuck-up upper-middle class snobs hang-out...too bad! And yes, if you're looking for an authentic Chinese meal then P.F. Chang's is NOT the place to go!
Better than ever now...and it has always been good!
The ad you ran in the Indy (Dec.11-17), featured buy an 8th get one free,at all locations,so what's wrong with the Canon City location??won't honor your ad!!!Yep,your USDA certified alright,typical BS!!!
Ate there again today. The place continues to improve; I give it 4 stars as I reserve 5 star status for places like the Broadmoor.
My wife's Fish and Chips were nothing short of awesome, the 3 large pieces were each a good 8-inches long and thick, the crust was crisp and not oily like so many places, and the french fries were addictive with their amazingly thin coating, staying crisp to the end.
My caesar salad had great grilled shrimp that were perfectly done.
The chocolate torte dessert is enough for several people and a must for chocolate fans.
Lastly, one way I judge eateries is by the quality of their restrooms, and CMB has about the nicest, cleanest restrooms I've ever seen.
You won't be disappointed here. Go.
What a shame that it closed after 111 years in the same location. I practically begged the Gazette to dignify this historic closing but neither the publisher, Dave Phillips, Linda Navarro or Bill Vogrin chose to reply.
Great sandwiches & coffee! ARTISTS' RECEPTION SUNDAY, DEC. 8 from 6:15-8:15 for DIANE & PHIL VALLEJO ARTWORKS
This place always has the best
Never lets me down
Will be back
Outstanding, homemade Mexican. The rojo is ridiculously good.
I agree, even with the new ownership and remodeling, it all looked and tasted worse. No wonder why they closed it down.
Bunch of cheats the department of wildlife. Rules apparently don't apply to them!
Cheap booze, nice staff. Usually close to empty though. This is great for a friendly social time but not a good place to looking for a new spouse.
