A vape shop is not necessarily a lounge. Stores are set up in numerous ways. Small locations like kiosks obviously can’t supply an area for vaping, although they might supply a tasting section, but it is not likely. Tiny vape shops do not have the room. A few stores are devoted to one sort of product or brand and aren’t really interested in e-liquid, although it’s uncommon for an e-cig vendor not to carry e-juice. Several large stores contain large display cabinets of stuff, but many vendors share space between e-cigs, pipes, and cigars.
Big vapor lounges are hang-outs; vaping clubs. Their unofficial members are customers who love to spend time with other vapers, learn about the latest products, and try new juices. A vapor lounge has a testing bar where they stock numerous flavors you can try before you buy.
Most vape stores are run by people who genuinely love helping smokers change over to vaping devices. They are vapers who love people and create a warm environment. Instead of a club, you feel like you walked into any well-run business establishment where the owner could have sold scented candles or shoes instead. All of the basic features of a good business are present: welcoming and knowledgeable staff members, information about products, and honest pricing. Sales clerks are encouraging but don’t pressure you to buy (or choose more expensive goods).
