    Just wanted to start a thread for us to compile a list of retailers in Ohio.

    Anyone that knows of any retail outlets that carry vaping supplies please post them here. Along with any experiences you may have with them (good or bad).

    I will kick it off with the only place that I do have experience with here in Columbus...

    'The Garden' on N. High St. Sells 801 and 901 kits (made by InLife) and prefilled carts. The prices are quite high. $139 for a kit that has 1-batt and 2-attys. Although the sales person behind the counter said that he was a vaper (didn't actually say vaper, just said he used e-cigs), he seemed to have limited knowledge of vaping. For example, he was unaware that the carts could be refilled.

    I have heard that Waterbeds-n-Stuff is also selling PVs now too, but I have not been into a store to check prices and selection. Anyone with more info, let us know.

    Has anyone come across any retailers (like tobacco shops) that are selling any juices?

    I think Pilot gas stations sells them.
    I don't know for how much.......

    I have not been in a tobacco shop for a long time (thank goodness, had no need) so I don't know if the one in my neighborhood sells them.

    Next time I'm in the neighborhood I'll check it out.

    Yeah, I know what you mean by not being in a tobacco shop in a while. :)
    The last time I was in one was a few months ago. I was looking for some pipe screens to make the 'screen mod'.

    While I was checking out I asked them if they sold any e-cig supplies, and the guy said (with an angry look), "I tried it, but didn't like it, so I'm not going to be selling any of that junk".
    I think what he meant to say was, "I tried it and realized this could kill my whole business (of killing ppl slowly), so I'm gonna tell everyone that I didn't like it and hopefully they won't either." :lol:

    Waterbeds and stuff carry 2 brands one is a re-branded Kr808d and I think the other one is a 510 (i know its a 3 piece) they are on sale now $80.00 for a basic starter kit.

    Their carts and cartos are $15.00 for a pack of 5 I believe.

    There is a tobacco shop in Lancaster Ohio, right downtown that has batteries, carts and juice! I don't remember the name but I will find out and post it.

    Volcano just opened a Retail store / vaping bar in Hawaii and I keep dropping hints on their forums to open a second location in OH, so we shall see... There's like 10 others on their forum form Ohio, and they're all starting to drop lil hints too.

    Fingers crossed

    My son does over th road trucking 48 states. Anyway he has seen the same ecig in all of em (pilots). He's a dipper so he was unaware of the model but said they were expensive. I think all suppliers should put this forum on a sticky and put it on all its products. deitra

    Personally, I don't think Njoy, or SE, or any of those "free trial" companies want you to know about ECF. If I buy an Njoy at the Pilot station and it directs me to ECF, one of the first things I'm going to read about when I search my new toy is how much I overpaid, and how I can get a dozen other e-cigs that are better for half the price. Then the Njoy is going back to Pilot.

    The ECF is awesome for consumers and competitive suppliers, but it's the arch enemy of the suppliers that "rip you off".

    Wow, judging by the pic, that place looks huge. I might have to check it out some time. I'm back and forth between Columbus and Cinci all the time. The company I work for is actually in Cinci.

    I never thought of checking the flea market scene for ecig stuff, but it makes sense. They always have stuff you can't find anywhere else. There's a couple of those here in Columbus I will have to check.

    Let us know what you find. I have not bothered taking the short drive up there just because I cannot imagine that it would be cheaper than ordering from the internet, plus I will have to pay sales tax + the cost of the gas. I still may go in and have a look at some point I'm just not in a hurry.

    I think they are only open on Sat and Sun.

    I have talked to the guy at traders world. Was there a few months ago, he is selling 510's..i think his kit was around 45 dollars. Has a good variety of juice also. A friend of mine needed some juice, called him and he was willing to meet her on 75 somewhere. Oh yeah if i remember right he's in building 5, its a hugh place and we went there just to visit his booth. Not sure he is still there, this was back before christmas.

    It's great to hear that some places are starting to sell better ecigs and liquid. I hope more and more places start to carry them. I hate having to go online to order eliquid all the time. The shipping charges annoy me.

    The only "Retail" establishment I've been able to find is the "Chaep Tobacco" chain that they have around here. That's where just I picked mine up, in Canton. The brand name on the e-cig is Fuma, but I'm pretty sure it's just a KR808D-1 with a different label. It was $50 for the starter kit, which cam with 1 cartomizer, a USB charger, auto-batt, and wall charger.

    FWIW, the website for the Fuma is myfuma.com, and it's still "Under Construction". I'm still trying to verify if it's just a KR808 in different clothes, which would make ordering supplies much easier.

    That site address is a spam site. Not the real site.

    The man at Traders World is named Robert Drinnen.His Website is VaporVillage D O T Com. I ordered a 510 Starter and a couple of 30ml bottles of Juice from him. I found him to be courteous and prompt. He was out of the 30 ml of Clove that I wanted and packed 3 10ml's instead with a note of apology. He will continue to get my business and any more that I can bring his way.

    I haven't been there in a while. I might go sometime in the next few weeks. It's right across from Turtle Creek Flea Market, so I'll probably check there too. Plus I'll get to see if they've done any work on the "Touchdown Jesus" that burned down a few weeks ago.

    Other than supporting a local vendor, what is the motivation here? There are tons of online vendors and the juices are available in a much wider range of flavors.

    Most of the PVs I've seen in stores were all variations of a 901 or 306. Those starter kits sell online for $35-$45 so why would anyone want to buy a starter kit for $100-$200... and buying pre-filled carts is idiotic. (not to mention juice that cost more than $1.25 a ml.)

    That being said, I have recently heard that alsmoke will shortly be moving facilities and there will probably be an option of a small storefront.

    It would be nice to have an option when waiting for supplies via snail mail. Who knows, maybe after a while the outragous prices will come down.
