5 Things To Look For When Searching For A Vape Shop



Hello everyone in the vape-mosphere! It’s the start of a new week here in the U.S. Some of you might be heading to your favorite local vape shop to re-up.

On the other hand, some of you out there might still be searching for a place you can frequently visit and get whatever it is you need that is vaping related.

I know the feeling of walking into a new shop, putting my hard earned money at jeopardy and not knowing if the experience with that shop will be a good or bad one. Not a good feeling at all!

I came up with 5 things I look out for that helped me zone in on shops that made my purchases a lot more enjoyable:

1. They don’t sell tobacco products – It usually is a red flag for me when I see any kind of tobacco product in a “vape” shop. E-cigarettes were developed to get you off of cigarettes, not to go hand in hand.

2. They have a juice bar – No, not the one that serves you smoothies (although smoothies and vaping actually sound like a good idea). I’m talking about a shop that lets you sample the e-juice you plan on buying.

3. They have a variety of e-juice, mods, and accessories – I once stepped into a store that had 3 gorgeous authentic mechanical mods on display, each one costing at least $200. When I asked to see the other mods they had, I was told that that was their whole inventory.

I just remember leaving and saying to myself, “Then why even bother putting up a shop?”

4. They are on Yelp – I love using Yelp and this is what I learned: any shop that has zero or a few reviews isn’t worth the visit while the stores that SHOULD be avoided are exposed by disgruntled Yelp users.

5. The staff vapes – I don’t care what their reason is, I want people that run a vape shop to actually know what I am talking about when I ask them about a product they have, it’s that simple.

I am always on the lookout for new shops and so far this has been my tried and tested method in finding shops that I know are worth my time and money.

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!
