Good Time Productz: Michigan's Premier Head Shop - by Joe Dauphinais



     Good Time Productz is one of the most impressive head shops in Michigan. Offering amazing deals from their giant space located in Detroit’s Roseville suburb, this store is packed with just about any kind of smoking accessory you could possibly think of, and then some. Good Time Productz’ huge selection includes clothing and apparel, tapestries, a variety of hookahs, extraction equipment, books, interior decor, novelty gifts, and way more. You could say that Good Time Productz is a Toys R Us for grown ups.     

     The first time I went to this store, I had a feeling like the space seemed familiar, although I couldn’t quite figure out why. After browsing for a little while it dawned on me. I asked one of the staff, “Did this used to be a record store?” The girl at the counter replied, “Yeah, it was called Record Time.” I hadn’t thought about Record Time in years.

    For younger readers, or for those who didn’t grow up around metro Detroit, Record Time was THE destination for music fans and audiophiles in the 80’s and 90’s. I have fond memories of killing time in my teenage years browsing the racks at Record Time. My brother’s band even played a show there once... aah the memories.

    But fast forward to the present. 2016 is nearly behind us, and everyone knows that digital technology has forced most record stores to go the way of the dodo. I guess it is no surprise for me to find out that Record Time in Roseville had to close their doors, but I am relieved to know that Good Time Productz is using this space to its full potential.

     Open for about a year now, Good Times has quickly become a must-see destination for smokers and counter-culture enthusiasts. They have such a huge selection of glass that it is at first mind boggling. They have everything from top of the line bubblers and name brand glass to budget-friendly solutions and everything in between. The glass parts department of the store by itself is bigger than some entire head shops. They even have on-site glass blowing for custom pieces and repairs. 

     Good Time Productz has clothing and apparel that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. They offer graphic tees and hats from rolling paper brands, glass makers and nutrient companies. They have apparel and wall art featuring music, movies and pop culture, psychedelic imagery and more. Definitely check out the 3-D tapestries and canvases. Those alone are worth the trip. Just ask for some 3-D glasses, I’m sure they will let you borrow a pair.

     One thing that needs to be mentioned, is the special deal that they run every single day of the week. Every afternoon at 4:20pm, for one minute only, all glass on the south wall and counters are half off. So if you have your eye on a certain piece, make sure to be there at 4:20 to take advantage of that deal.

     With the holiday shopping season in full swing, right now is the perfect time to check out Good Time Productz if you haven’t already. They are having an epic sale going on now until the end of the year, with deals on just about anything and everything in the store. You could easily cross a few names off of your shopping list here, or even pick yourself up a little something to help when it’s time to de-stress during the holidays. 


     Unlike the malls and big box stores, the atmosphere inside Good Time Productz is totally chill. With tasteful music from the overhead, and a super-helpful staff, this store is a pleasure to visit. Make sure to give yourself some time if you go, there is a lot to take in.
