Great people working there been going there for many years

Review by Ashley Hanneken

Not much of a variety of groceries but is great for grabbing Aid quick drink or cigarettes. There is always Shady people loitering in the parking lot and sitting in their cars there blaring music. The prices are a little high but average for a convenience store and the workers are very kind and polite

Growing up I lived in the neighborhood and have wonderful memories of this shop. I still come here anytime I'm in Alton. They are the absolute best. They remember you, they treat you like family.

Review by Savannah Anderson

I go there all the time ! Very friendly people, the owners are wonderful and always give my daughter two suckers.. Whenever I don't get anything for her or can't afford something that day. So I highly recommend this place and they just opened up a little chicken place right next door called Milton Place, pretty good, they also make good sandwiches, looks and taste like subways! Enjoy! 5 STARS!

What is a Dispensary?

A dispensary is a store that sells special items or dispenses the specialized items. Cannabis or marijuana dispensariers started in the US some time in the early 1990’s when Dennis Peron opend the San Francisro Cannbis Buyers Club. Back then the cannabis dispensary faced a ton of hardships, but Dennis, his team and dream helped pave the future for all future recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. In 2014 the first recreational dispensary, 3D Cannabis opened it’s doors in Colorado. As of 4-1-19 33 states have medical dispensaries and 10 states have recreational dispensaries.

At a dispnsary one will find many differnt kinds of cannabis flowers (buds) and concentrates, edibles along with smoking untensils, but have a limited selection compared to online shops like Elev8 Glass Gallery. The dispensary also will have what is called a budtender to help you find what you are looking for. If you need help with cannabis info Elev8 Presents is a good resource.

What is the difference between a medical or recreational dispensary?

In realtiy medical and recreational dispensaries are the same thing. This all comes down to the states laws on cannabis. We feel cannabis is just like alcohol and medical will happen first and then recreational will follow, and so far history is showing this. Dispensaries are an excellent place for patients and recreational smokers alike to find the cannabis that best suits their needs!
