Great Walmart. Pretty much has everything you need. Food, clothes, games, bird food. It's a good shop

I like using the self checkout, gets me in and out faster. The fried chicken is surprisingly good too.

Review by Tanya Carol

I needed help getting earphones out of a locked case, could not find an employee to help. 2 fast walked right past, without helping even though I tried to get their attention. When the photo lady came over, she was great. Very helpful. Then I get to the register up front. Thought I scored with only one person in front of me. Nope. She had to wait for a CSM because the card reader was not working. The other 2 lanes were full of people. Took several minutes for the cashier to flag one down even though she requested one on those palm pilot things. This was only my experience today. Sunday I had to go for an item and it took the CSM over 10 minutes to come just to approve a coupon. I will be ordering those few items, that only they carry locally, online from someone else. The past few years Wood River Walmart has only gotten worse.

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!
