    I'm split pretty 50/50 with that. If I'm shopping for juices, my local shop has a killer juice bar where I can try anything I'd like (they have over 100 different brands, flavors, so, that keeps me busy.) I rarely order juice online unless someone recommends some to me. I'd much rather try it before buying.

    If I'm buying coils (I finally graduated to making my own, yay!) or batteries, etc... I always buy those online. The mark up is too high in stores near me to justify it, even though I want to help them out. I can't pay $90 for something that I can buy for $30 online.

    I like to shop at a store. I think the overall experience is better. You can ask the workers questions and for new recommendations and stuff like that. At the place I go to the man lets me try different things for free -like he will give a brand new pen and let me take it home and test it- and if I like it I buy a lot from him and recommend it to friends. Build relationships with the people! It pays off, it's not what you know, it's who you know!

    I think it's easier to shop in the store. There, you can have direct conversation with the workers and ask questions about the product. Also, you do not have to pay for shipping and do not have to wait to receive your package. Also, you can see the product in person and buy your e-cig without any bad surprises.

    Well, my local stores have very good gear, so I prefer shopping from there. But when it comes to flavors, I always shop for them online. I like to get them from good dealers and have the best vaping experience. And when I shop for gear I want to test out what I'm buying, so I prefer buying it from stores.

    I personally like visiting a store rather than shopping online just because I like to go out and see people. I don't always have the time to visit a store. Shopping online is convenient it allows you to buy things without hurting your schedule. The best thing about shopping online is that it gives you privacy because you won't have people looking at you while you shop. Not only that, but the receipts are usually made so that no one will know what you bought.

    I prefer visiting a store because I like to physically see what I am going to buy and be able to see the quality of the product. Also, I don't really mind people looking at what I buy.

    I prefer going personally to a store. I think it's always better to try out or experience the product iteself before you pay for it. Plus it's better to have the assurance of seeing a legit store and holding the product in your hand personally instead of just looking at pictures online and paying someone behind a desk half way around the globe. Who knows it's a scam or a bogus. :? :shock: :cry:

    Until I am an experienced vaper I would prefer to buy in a store of course because I would have a ton of questions to make and I want to check the material. For an experienced vaper I think online is a better choice though.

    I prefer to visit a store to purchase my vapor products. I believe it is a highly personal choice whether you buy online or in a store.

    Definitely online, that's where I've found all the best deals. That goes for almost anything really, but especially e cigs.

    I've actually never been to a store, mainly because of lack of opportunity. I don't mind ordering online though as long as I trust the place and have heard good things from other people.

    I always shopped at a local store. I find it better to see it for your self and trying on the moment. I frequently go to that shop so the guy who works there wants me to try any new liquid so I can give my opinion. And he gives me some good deals too. I tried over 90+ liquids only from that store. And only bought about 20 different liquids or so.

    I prefer to visit a store because then I can basically see what I'm buying. Especially with clothes. The ones you order through a internet shop you can only be guided by the size.

    Im 50 50 on online shopping. The shipping costs and waiting a week for your stuff gets on my nerves. I still prefer to order a bunch of stuff in the comfort of my home and have it delivered to my door though.

    At first it was easier to purchase online because we had absolutely no shops within 30 miles of our home. Now that we have several nearby its so much nicer to shop in store. The great thing about our store is that they have a testing station that allows you to test out ANY flavor that you like. Of course the testers don't have nicotine in them so not to get overloaded with nicotine. Some stores only allow a few tests each visit but our store has over 50 flavors and no limit when testing. Its great because if I want to try something different they simply say come on over and try this new one out or try it again to make sure you still like it. :D :D If available they will also let you try out different atomizer set ups as well.

    When I was living in Phoenix I would go into shops since I had so many options. My current city has terrible shops for ecigs and I don't even bother visiting them anymore. I stick to online purchases unless I visit a big city where I have more options available at a shop or two I can visit.

    You're right because i ordered a lot of them and they are not what they appeared to be online.
