Vape Shops Afar
Okay, so I'm curious as to your local vape shop.

The vape shop I work at has a pool table, big screen TV, XBox One, couches, chairs, tables, and coming soon...free arcade games.  We encourage our customers to come in and just hang out...even if they're not buying...and most of them do.  On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the shop is full from open to close.  For the Superbowl, we kept the shop open till the game was over, and provided free food, sodas, and Monster.  This month we are hosting a cloud competition, where competitors will have a chance to win mods, tanks, accessories, juices, and gift cards to the shop.  Our customer base is largely young Sailors and Marines that attend school at one of the local Navy bases so it has also become a local hangout for them.  It's perfectly normal to walk into the shop at 3pm any day of the week and find the couches full, and the shop so fogged that you have to put your nose to the glass to see into the cases where we keep our displays.  During slower hours, it's perfectly normal to see the manager playing a customer at a game of pool and offering a discount or a free house juice if they win.

I originally found this shop through my brother, before becoming an employee.  Is this shop unique?  Or are there other shops out there like ours?  I hope, that for the vaping community...there are LOTS of shops like ours.

I believe there are some.

Just not any one I've ever been in. Sad

There are now two near me, I've not been in either.

RE: Vape Shops Afar
That sounds like an awesome shop! I've been to a helluva lot of vape shops, but very rarely come across one that nice. My favorite local shop has couches and encourages people to come hang out, and I went to one shop that had board games and Beer and desserts for sale, but on the whole I think most shops are a little less friendly than that. Most I've been to have a couch, but it's just for testing juice and then leaving.

Yeah, the other shops in the area may have chairs or a couch but they are for customers to sample, then leave.  We encourage them to hang out.  This morning I spent an hour playing pool against a customer since we were slow.
