Yay!!!! Hard to believe but Eugene actually has a vape shop.. Nice to know there are other vapors in Duck country... We should have a meet
Anyways if you live in Eugene go to Emerald Vapor on 13th right before bergs ski shop.. It's about time someone opened a shop here!!!
I went in today, and I have to say that I am very impressed. They don't have a massive selection, but it's certainly plenty for novice vapers to advanced vapers - they have (disposable and rechargeable) micro batteries, along with a large selection of eGo-style batteries and even the Vamo! In terms of atomizers, they have cartomizers, tanks, and a dripping atty; along with a few different RBAs.
Their juice, though, is definitely impressive. I tried their 'tasting bench' flavors (which they provide passthroughs, attys, and drip tips for - a great idea for getting people into vaping, and it lets you sample their flavors before buying) and I was very impressed with everything but their tobacco. However, they said that tobacco is a work in progress, and while it doesn't appeal to me, another customer who arrived shortly after me seemed to like his a great deal (though his was clove tobacco, like a kretek).
I bought a 10mL of blackberry, and it's pretty good. Doesn't taste like fresh blackberries - but I wasn't really expecting that. This blackberry tastes exactly like the filling in a blackberry pie, and isn't overpoweringly sweet. They mix every bottle of juice when you order it, too, which I think is a nice touch.
The pricing is comparable to online stores, surprisingly. I paid $2.50 for an atty, $3.50 for a stainless Ming drip tip, and $6 for 10mL of juice - however, the referral discount is 10%, which you get as well as the person you refer to the store. In addition, they have a frequent purchaser program - think coffee shop style.
All in all, they're a great place, and I'm definitely giving them my business in the future. Very impressed.
Glad you liked them.. Just nice to have if shipping is slow a back up plan. Great to have a place I can send people to check out .. Ive been ordering for others and now I can just send them down. Yay! Great Review! Looking forward to hopefully seeing more vapors around town!
Hey Symmetry maybe I'll run into you sometime at Emerald Vapors.. Colin says you are very knowledgable on all things vape! BTW I had him mix me up some red hots... Very tasty! It's great to have a shop in town to go grab a emergency box of cartos..
