In Chattanooga downtown, electronic cigarette users now have a new ecig store to check out and frequent. Vapor Tonics is now open to offer ecig devices, e-liquids and other related accessories and supplies.
Store manager Ben Connally described electronic cigarettes as devices containing e-liquid that is subjected to low degree heat in order to create vapors. E-liquids may or may not be laced with liquid nicotine. They are also comprised of food flavorings, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. He added that vaping is smoking’s future.
The ecig store is specifically at 426 Vine St. It opened just last week and offers ecigarettes from Joyetech. Right now, customers can choose from the 30 available flavors, but soon, this collection will become 50 in all.
What is great about the store’s offered flavors is that they are made here in the US, in North Carolina; instead of being imported from other countries.
A special promo offered by the store is 10% discount on all items for Unum employees, state employees and UTC students.
For $35, a customer can already get a kit that contains battery, charger, flavor cartridges and e-liquid. Ecigs offer cost-efficiency even to the heaviest smoker because he/she will only spend $5-7 for a week supply of juices.
You can visit the store on any day of the week between 11 AM until 7 PM. This store, incidentally, is working for a grant program that will financially support an electronic cigarette research to be conducted at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Not All Customers Like Nicotine E-liquids
According to Connally, not all of their customers have been asking for nicotine-laced solutions. In fact, half of their customers actually ask for non-nicotine mixes. It is for the purpose of enjoyment that people smoke, regardless if they will get high or not with the addictive substance.
