How to get there
As many of you know, Pine Bluff is my old stomping grounds, so I had no issues finding High Bank, located at 525 Mallard Loop. If you are unfamiliar with the area, from I-530, take exit 43 for Olive Street. You will then take a left at the light at the end of the exit ramp and proceed onto South Olive. You’ll find Mallard Loop on the left side of the street, across from Wal-Mart, tucked behind a small strip mall.
I arrived to find a large gray brick fronted building large enough to hold several businesses. I’m excited to see what might move in next door! I walked in as soon as they opened and the first thing I noticed is that the building doors are all tall and distinguished looking. After entering, I find a comfortable seat to wait for my turn to be checked in.
Service with a Smile
While waiting I was offered refreshments from a snack station nearby. Within just a few minutes I was called up to a counter, very much like a bank, where I gave an employee my Medical Marijuana Card and Identification and the filled out a quick questionnaire. A security guard then opens another tall eloquent interior door to my right ushering me into the show room.
The motif, especially in the showroom is very upscale. A lot of thought and detail was put into making the interior the classiest place I’ve been in Pine Bluff in a very long time. I didn’t have long to observe before another employee a gift from the grand opening. There was a white board with prices listed by the gram. If you purchased by the gram the product came in white zippered Mylar packs. However there are also cultivation packed or High Bank packed jars for eighth ounces or larger. My bud tender, Ashley grabbed exactly what I wanted. Krystal rang me up and packaged my purchases into a white bag.
Then I was ushered thru a different tall sophisticated door back into the front waiting area. Again, I was offered a snack to go then ushered back outside to the well lit ADA compliant parking lot to my car parked just feet away from the door. I loved the treatment I was given and noticed that every one of the doors were opened for me either by security or a bud tender, and there was always someone nearby to take care of any need I might have had.
Opening Day special
For the grand opening in addition to the gift of a shirt or hat of your choice they offered everyone 10% off everything in store! Most products were packaged and displayed like their sister store, Suite 443, but the color scheme and logos are a little different. The High Bank logo is reminiscent of a Fortune 500 company or professional sports team.
In the Neighborhood
You will find just about anything you might need from shopping. Dining or getting fuel within a couple blocks from the High Bank location. I would have never imagined the classiest dispensary I have ever seen would be in my home town of Pine Bluff. I’m impressed with the small things like the lighting and extra cameras. The pricing is not the lowest I’ve seen but it was reasonable.
Overall I had an wonderful first experience at High Bank. I look forward to future trips as my life takes me to pine bluff more than any of the other towns that have dispensaries. I found their hours of operation listed on Weedmaps as Monday- Saturday 10 am- 8 pm and Sunday 10 am- 6 pm. You can contact them thru their website, http://highbankcannabisco.com, down load their app or give them a call at 870-568-0420. This location accepts debit cards and has an ATM if you prefer not to carry cash. I’m glad to see this dispensary opening as the more that opens better serves the patient. Be sure to stop by High Bank and make a withdrawal soon!
