    I prefer to buy from local B&M stores because I can try e liquid and mods before I buy them and I am supporting vaping in my local area. The problem I have is that everything is so much cheaper online(and juice isn't that great at my local shop). So if something is only alittle more locally I stop in and grab it. Many mods, RBA's, tanks ect.. are twice as much or more or they just don't carry that type of product at my B&M.

    Personally I really like a mod and kayfun for vaping. PT2 or Iclear tanks are good for travel(in my pocket) or for my wife(but she still uses a Itaste SVD). I have a stick battery but never use it, as a backup I carry an extra battery and a Itaste vv. Cant comment on a mech just yet, still waiting for Fasttech do deliver

    I just wanted to update everyone that when I started this thread/poll there were no vape shops in my area. Now there are at least 4-6 shops that opened. I went to one to show my support but like everything else retail it was more expensive and the ejuice I sampled sucked. Actually the sales person mentioned they let under age kids sample the zero nic. Yikes, I won't be going there again. I think I'll stick to buying stuff online.

    Eek that sounds like a real seedy shop. You should check out the other ones in your area, chances are there's at least one good one

    There are 2 shops within 5 miles of where I live. One of them is fantastic their stuff costs more than online stores, but only by a little. I prefer buying liquid there because I can try it before I buy it when I first started vaping I had to buy everything online, and I ended up not liking most of what I bought because it didn't taste as I imagined it would, and I ended up with about 40 bottles of liquid and only vaping 2 flavors; buying flavors to try them was a huge waste of money in comparison to just going to my B&M.

    I've never been to the other shop, I've heard it's not very good at all and I have no reason to bother.

    I know what you mean, I've wasted too much time and money on buying ejuices. I'm thinking about one day trying one of those ejuice monthly services like Craft Vapery.

    Our local 'vape shop' is the tobacco shop--not helping.

    I have visited my local vape shop once just to check it out and try a few new flavors at the vape bar but typically it is easier to just order from them online and have it shipped to me. I can order it on a Friday and it is here on Saturday or Monday at the latest. Also, they have a menthol maker where you select a flavor, type of tobacco, nicotine, pg/vg mix, and menthol strength which can only be customized with online orders. We like the Natural Tobacco with a hint of Chocolate at 18mg nicotine, 70/30 mix, and strong menthol. The wife and I think the flavor is the most satisfying in replacing our old menthol cigarettes.

    I prefer the price and selection of shopping online, but I'm glad I have an ok local shop for when I just need a new coil or two or a bottle of juice to hold me over while something ships.

    I would love a vape bar where they prep your selection. I guess samples on the wall for everyone to try is ok...I've had to ask them to inspect a few since it was leaking or maybe it was someones nasty saliva.
