How to choose a great vape shop #4: A Community You Can Count On.

In the final installment of our How to Choose a Great Vape Shop series, we cover one of the more intangible things you want to look for in your local vape shop: A Commitment to the Vaping Community.

As you progress on your vaping journey, a great local vape shop can provide you with more than just product knowledge – it can give you connections to the vaping community, support, help, and other local resources such as vaping groups. Because a great vape shop will be active in that community. They should be involved in, and tell you about, local vaping group events. Plus, those terrific vape shops are a great place to meet, interact and share with other vapers, and inject yourself into the community. They open their doors to all vapers and even host meets and local clubs. You should feel that you can walk in and discuss not just the latest mods and e-juices, but also vaping culture, and the latest news in the industry.

Ultimately, great vape shops visibly show their support for vaping and the vaping community at large. Which means they go above and beyond, supporting vaping causes, upholding industry groups, fighting to establish standards, and are visible in their local business community. They support consumer advocacy groups like CASAA, and trade associations like SFATA.
