    I go to B&Ms as a last resort! Everything they're doing is bad. Selling to minors, overpricing everything, and even selling clones/forgeries as authentic.

    I've had enough and I stock up online so I don't have to walk in. ebay/FT/ecb are where I spend my money. Since switching back to mechs and using rebuildables I really only have to buy juice on ecb and restock wire/mesh on ebay.

    So, I guess I wish the B&Ms would just close or get right. I'm in the inland empire in southern California. The B&Ms in LA/OC have more reasonably priced cartos/juice/batts.

    I quit smoking to save my life and save my money, so I shop where ever I can get quality stuff at the best price. The only thing a B&M can offer me over an online shop is a "lounge". My lounge is where my playstation is.

    Must be located somewhere between Boston and Frankfurt? Sigh...

    I really don't get it, why some of what should be the most obvious major markets have no vape stores. Frankfurt? Palm Springs? Boston? You gotta be kidding. (And no a wagon cart in the Galeria Mall in Cambridge doesn't count...)

    I wish they offered different mg of nicotine. Made to order whatever you wanted would be nice but ok... I'm dreaming!

    Ummm... I would like to remind you at this time that "those" are not yours to share.

    That wouldn't have stopped

    You don't have to worry now. I have a lot more devices as backups than I did. :D

    Well, there are vape shops in Germany - there are a lot in the Cologne / Düsseldorf area, for example.
    But, for some weird reason, there is not a single vape shop in the Frankfurt area. Hm.. I mean, Frankfurt is only the banking and financial capital of Germany and it only has the biggest international airport of the whole country. And it only has the skyline that most people have seen when thinking of Frankfurt
    Small, insignificant place, if you ask me ...

    Ah well, I order online, and I do get jealous when I read of all your B&M stores..

    More variety in all realms.... More juices that aren't just one-note flavors (apple, grape, etc.). More mods-- both regulated & mechanical, in different price ranges. More juice delivery options than clearos and RBAs. More accessories.

    Most of them seem to be pushing mechs on anyone who wants something other than eGos, and those mechs don't appear to come with any safety instruction from the shops.

    I think that would be an excellent idea. Other kinds of equipment stores, such as REI, do this.

    Yes. In fairness, some of our juice offerings are improving substantially around here. There's a shop selling Five Pawns and some other premium brands, for example. But most of them could use some improvement.

    I'm not lucky enough to have one close by me.... but it would be nice to be able to see and hold the product before buying sometimes. This way you know exactly what to expect.

    My favorite part about my B&M is that they let us sample the juices before we buy them and that they guarantee products for 90 days with receipt.

    There's two shops I go to, one is mainly a hardware store and the other one I go to for my juices. The hardware one repairs the batteries for free as long as you purchase from them. They carry a bunch of cartos clearos and so fourth as well. It's great being able to touch and see a product for myself instead of basing solely upon online reviews.

    I wish there was more juice diversity though of course, can there ever be enough juice!?

    I live in the middle of freakin' nowhere, but many vape shops have popped up in the recent past. I can honesly say there is nothing I want. A couple of them even have the occassional ProVari or two, which is nice to see what color they actually are.

    Ok, one wish, that my favorite one would carry Ikenvape cartos, IBTanked, and ProVaris all the time. Then I would never shop online.

    Interesting! I am loving the input here. It seems like your local B&M stores usually lack knowledge or slap high price tags. Luckily, I am from LA, so there are plenty of stores for me to choose from. What about online stores? Do you guys have any wishes/suggestions for online stores?

    Oh my gosh, YES! I think 90 percent of the vaping websites need a major professional makeover! At the very least, they need a proofreader. I thought I was the only one. Glad to see I am not alone.

    I guess I can't complain too much about my local B and M's. I have three in my area, one of which just opened and I haven't been to yet. One makes their liquid on premises and you can order any nic or PG/VG you want, and their juices are good and well priced. They have a limited line of hardware but good stuff. The other one sells one of the fairly well known liquids and has a pretty extensive line of hardware. Yes, they are more expensive than buying online but the owner will discount or throw in something extra. I really like that I can go get something I need right away and it's worth the extra money. Both these places are owned by people who are trying to create good businesses and I try to support them as much as I can. You can sample at both shops

    I also do buy online, especially liquid. If I could change anything, I wish the local shops carried more 'branded' liquid lines.

    Funny, I was at Costco last night and noticed that they have a big display for Enjoy. Bulk liquid next? :)
