    Sounds like Volcano. For those headed here, you have to look for the sign on the door. There won't be a Volcano sign on the building yet.

    I believe they have volcano decals on the windows on the store front but no, no signage except for Puffing Monkey

    Never knew this was there. I pass King on my way to visit my mother.

    I've never been to an actual brick and mortar vape shop. They don't have any near the holler where I live in BF-Virginia! LOL Hell, nobody I've met where I live is familiar with ecigs unless it's the disposables in the kwiky marts or the ones they sell at Wallworld! Gonna have to stop by there next time I go to see my mom.

    I grew up and lived in Hope Mills, NC. Only those that live there or are or have been stationed at Ft.Bragg may have heard of it. It WAS a little 'burb of Fayette-nam when I lived there. Now I almost get lost sometimes with all the new businesses and strip malls. They only had 2 stop lights, 1 blinking light, a Winn Dixie, a bank and two kwik marts when I first moved there back in '74. Oh yeah, there was still water in the lake too! LOL (you'd know the joke if you lived near there).

    I still have some friends in the Fayetteville area and was wondering if there were any vape shops there now? If so, I'm pretty sure they are downtown around Cross Creek Mall somewhere if there are any. Heaven forbid if they are in Spring Lake heheheh. If there are some, please PM me and let me know.

    If there are any on/very near this route I take to Southern Pines, please let me know too.

    I-74/52 to Lexington
    US 64 to Asheboro
    US 220 to Pinehurst exit
    211 to Aberdeen
    15-501 towards Laurinburg
    I could also swing through Rockingham if there's one there.

    Thanks ahead of time for any info and GO HEELS!!! (UNC grad ;) Hope this doesn't limit information from fans of those other schools in the Triangle area. I won't hold it against you if you don't hold it against me ;) LOL

    It was originally called Puffing Monkey and that's what he registered with the city. It has been changed to Volcano of Raleigh, on the windows, but Puffing Monkey on the building.

    Yea..its a lot cheaper to order from the website and pay shipping. Ive been a couple times, only if I was in the area, and was surprised by the prices. If you mention it, I think they will give a discount...they did for me.

    Also, about MadVapes

    I was in their shop last week and I think their prices in store are a little more in line with their website prices. I didn't pull up the site to check while I was there, but they seemed at least close.

    Also, they have locations in Mooresville, Charlotte (near Northlake Mall) and a new one opening in Concord

    I gotta say, I'm really happy to have an actual vape shop in my area, and will be supporting them as much as possible. I really like the fact that if I need a carto, tank, battery, etc., I can get it at a moments notice. Much better than the old days of constant worrying about something breaking or running out and having to wait on the USPS or go back to analogs

    There's a very new, very small vapor shop in Greenville NC now. Pure Vapor - It's on Firetower Rd almost directly accross from Covenant Church. They are sharing office space with a realty office (I think that's what it is). They had some devices that looked like egos and some clearomizers. They had a small supply of juice - 10mls for $7... it appeared to be DIY, simple one flavor juice. I could make 10mls of juice for 50c. I could get 30mls shipped to my door from Mt. Bakor for about $7.

    I understand that they have to pay the bills, but every brick and mortar I've ever been in, I've walked out empty handed. 50c more than I pay online? Perfect! I'm not giving someone $3 for a 60c cartomizer.

    It infuriates me to think that a newbie vapor would walk into one of these places and drop 10 times the money as they should because they don't know any better.

    I would totally give a brick and mortar all of my business if I didn't feel like I was getting robbed. This stuff can be had for a fraction of the price online. Vendors take note!

    I'm posting this in case there are any new NC vapers looking for a place in WNC. There is a B&M in Asheville that I visited called Smokey Mountain Vapors. I wouldn't suggest you go there if you're a noob. It's not a bad place necessarily (although there is one bad review on the forum) but I think you would get a whole lot more useful info right here. The prices weren't extravagant, but I didn't care for the juices - at all. Also, he had some not-so-nice things to say about the forum.

    I don't live in Asheville- I"m about 2 hrs. away- but it was the closest I could find.

    Hope this helps.

    Saw a new place while visiting White Lake this weekend. The Vapor Shack just opened in Elizabethtown @ 106 Broad St. I have not been in there so not sure what they have. They also have stores in Wilmington, Whiteville, and Leland.

    For the Charlotte area folks

    Carolina Ecigs has two brick and mortar locations (both fairly new) in the Char-meck area. One in Huntersville and one in Fort Mill, SC. Prices are fairly competitive with MadVapes (though they don't have quite the selection of apv's, just a few VVs and mechs) and customer service is top notch. They carry halo juices, as well as their own house brand Smooth Vapes.

    They don't offer quite as few bits and pieces as MadVapes, but comparing the customer service I got at MadVapes Charlotte location with what I've gotten at Carolina Ecigs... I think I'll stick to using madvapes online only.
