Over the past 5 years there has been an explosion of vape shops opening their doors around the world and in this post we’re going to discuss some of the reasons why ranging from huge demand for vape products to social media’s role in amplifying the trend.
The number one reason why vape shops have grown like crazy since 2013 is really simple: People are buying vaporizers, e-juices and electronic cigarettes left and right. Each year the size of the market continues skyrocket and many people like the feeling of stopping by a local vape shop, hanging out a little, and buying whatever their heart desires.
Taking things one step further, especially when it comes to true vape enthusiasts, there’s something to be said about going to a local vape shop that feels like home. It’s no different than having a favorite coffee shop or sushi restaurant.
Another thing to look at is what drives the demand for vape products that ultimately led to the rise in vape shops. In particular, social media has played an enormous role in bringing vaping to the mainstream and social networks like Instagram have become almost an online home for vapers.
The third key reason why vape shops are now so popular is because – no matter what anyone says – vaping is here to stay and customers want stores dedicated to vape products. Yes, small and large retailers selling vape gear is common, but it’s no different than going to a butcher to get specific cuts of meat as opposed to simply swinging by the supermarket and grabbing whatever’s available.
