Website says they opened at 11:00. It was about 10 min after. Front doors were locked. Went around to side. They informed us that they would be opening later, but weren’t sure when.

You might try calling Floyd’s of Leadville (dispensary). I think there’s some overlap in staff, or at least they know each other.
