Portland is different from other cities in part because of how we treat each other. The staff members at Bridge City Collective embody that ethos: They're self-aware and chill, and make an effort to speed up transactions when you're in a rush. The inventory is meager compared to other spots that pack their shelves with brownies from every Tom, Dick and Mary. But what Bridge City does have is quality and an emphasis on uncommon products and strains, like Dr. Who, Grandpa Larry and Where's My Bike?—which feels a lot like how it sounds. BCC stands out for its loyalty and recycling programs, the latter offering credit to patients who remember to round up the sea of plastic containers that develops after a few visits.
