How do I use the in store technology at A21?
One of the things that set us apart is our seamless experience through state-of-the-art shopping technology.
Flower products: In the center of the store you will see three large ‘budbar’ stations with over 40+ different strains of flower to see, touch and smell. To use the technology and for the best shopping experience at A21, you will lift a flower jar that lies in front of the educational screen in front of you. This will trigger all the information regarding that strain to pop up right in front of you so you can discover moer about the product while also getting to analyze it through sight, using our magnified viewing jars, and smell using the puff button that when pushed quickly delivers an ample wisp of terpene aroma.
Find a strain you like? Select “add to cart” and once you are ready to move on to a new section of products, select check out, add your first and last name the way it shows on your ID and submit your order. Then repeat the process throughout the store until you are ready to purchase.
Other cannabis products: Along the perimeters of the store, our shelving features products such as prerolls, vapes, extracts, edibles and more. These sections work a little differently but give you the same detailed information. See an item you’re interested in on a shelf? Pick it up and place it on the flat reader to the side of the screen to discover more about it as the details appear on the screen. Same as before, add the product(s) to your cart and check out with your first and last name to move on.
Your order will be packed and ready as you browse the store. Check out at a service counter and enjoy your purchase.
