Why, exactly, do vape stores seem to be everywhere?

    I mean really. I went to Cape Coral, FL a few months ago to visit my grandmother. On the way there, and while in Cape Coral, it seemed as if there was at least one vape store in every single outlet mall.

    I know vaping is popular, but dang. How is this market not oversaturated at this point? It's truly ridiculous. I think my hometown is now getting 2 MORE vape stores, and it's a town of only 10,000 people. Do we really need this many stores? Just one would be fine, thank you!

    I guess that there's a glut of vaping stores nowadays they got very popular, so I agree with you, but maybe just one store would be not enough. A few would be okay.

    I think that a big part of it is the cost of the product and the fact that it doesn't take a whole lot to furnish a small retail space to turn it into a "vape shop"

    I have a lot of wholesale contacts in China and what they charge for these clones of more expensive mods (which is what most shops sell), and the ego kits, etc is very little.

    Throw in a few display cases and a couple couches and bam lol.

    One benefit of having more than one shop in your town (mine has 3 and our pop. is like 14k) is that it forces them to compete for business by carrying new and different products and keep their prices competitive. I like to check them all out to see whats new.

    Pretty much that, if we have more stores the competition is bigger and the prices come down, great for us consumers. Why are there so many, I guess there's a lot of demand? It's a booming market. ;)

    Because it's the hot new thing that is safer than cigarettes. I think even if they make them illegal the shows will still be around everywhere. Kind of like head shops, which used to be the only place you could find vaping supplies and devices.
