The quality of the product was great, dude that checks ID very welcoming and cheery. The bud tender wasn’t as cheerful but he did ok. Gave me a recommendation which was actually spot on. Sativa dominant and was definitely uplifting. Nice environment, clean and open. The prices fluctuate from time to time which is expected of this industry. Overall good experience.
This is the best store all around I’ve never had a single problem so I don’t know what people are talking about ! If you don’t want to pay prizes then buy some Mexican brick weed and it’s cheap on streets but me I go to Enlighten !
Thank you, your review is very much appreciated! We are grateful for those who appreciate the effort we put forth to give customers a fantastic experience and to receive positive feedback like this is very reaffirming. Thanks for being awesome :) -Leah Levinton, Co-Owner
Prices have increased in the last couple weeks, while competitors prices are going down. I'll be back when/if prices are reasonable again.
Is it possible that you were familiar with a product price that was on special and then it went back up to it's normal price? We've actually been lowering our prices across our entire menu over the last few months, so unfortunately you may have caught a product that was on special and brought back to it's normal price. We've even had $12 grams, which is pretty competitive for Anchorage! We'd love to have you come back and give us another try! We do appreciate the feedback and thank you for taking the time to write a review. -Leah Levinton, Co-Owner
I love this shop more than any other in Anchorage but I was bumbed one night when I came 30 minutes before closing at 10 and the shop was vacant. So be warned they can randomly close earlier than advertised.
Hi there! Bummer, you came on an evening where we had closed two hours early for a special event. We organized an evening so all of the budtenders/Enlighten Family could spend time together at a Bear Tooth concert for a fun team building event. We did our very best to give customers a heads up about the early hours by posting signs all over the shop one month prior to the event and reminders on social media and our newsletter. We knew we wouldn't be able to catch everyone, and we are sorry that you came to purchase some goodies only to find the doors were closed. We are open most days out of the year except for Thanksgiving and Christmas :) We can't wait to see you in the shop again and thank you very much for taking the time to give us a review, we appreciate any and all feedback! -Leah Levinton, Co-Owner
Awesome staff and great selection of edibles prerolls flower and extract
Awesome, thanks for the feedback! We love our staff, too, and we're so grateful to provide you with a super experience when you come to Enlighten. Thanks again! -Leah Levinton, Co-Owner
Unprofessional talking bad about other shop just to make there price sound good no one pays 75$ for a 8th anymore
Came back a lil later to see if the girl was gone and she just looked at me and rolled her eyes bad bad service
The chick at the front was rude as can be ack like a know it all and price is a bit steep
We strive to provide excellent service with each and every customer and we are certainly disappointed that you did not have that type of experience. Our employee said she requested to see your ID at the register and that you were unhappy with having your ID checked twice at our shop. It is our standard policy to check patrons’ ID’s once at the door and a second time at the cash register to ensure we are fully compliant with the Alaska State marijuana laws to not allow anyone under the age of 21 or anyone without a valid form of photo identification into our store. Our prices are competitive with the Anchorage legal market, and in some cases we’ve even been able to provide products at “street” prices! Our employees share information and pricing options from other retail stores if we do not have what a customer is looking for, and it is not within our company culture to speak negatively about other retail shops. We certainly hope you’ll give us another chance to provide you with a more positive experience at Enlighten Alaska. -Leah Levinton, Co-Owner
