I am going to be straight forward with you. No matter what happens or where I go, Misty Mountain Vapors is always going to have a special place in my heart. This is the company that really started all of this for me.
MMV is my local brick and mortar shop. It was about a year ago when a good friend of mine came in to the place I worked with an eGo in his pocket. Knowing I smoked, he decided to tell me all about it. When he was done, he told me to visit Misty Mountain Vapors when I was ready.
It was probably two months later, in February 2012, when I was at the local flea market and was wandering around the fixed stores there. At the time, this was the only location for MMV other than the internet, and they were only open Saturday and Sunday, when the flea market was open. I walked passed their booth twice that day, and finally decided to step in and see what the whole thing was about.
I left with my first kit. Like many new vapers, my first kit was the eGo 510 basic starter kit. It was small and felt like a cigarette.
Since that fateful day, I have returned on a regular basis. So often, in fact, that I am on a first name basis with most of the staff.
I like a brick and mortar, especially for a new vaper. Why? Because while you may be able to get your kits cheaper online, a brick and mortar offers you something a website can’t… help. You can go to your local shop and have the folks there answer every question you can throw at them, all before you throw your money at them. They’ll match you up with what best suits you, show you how to work it, how to care for it, etc. They’ll spend time with you. Every time, if the place is even halfway decent.
Misty Mountain Vapors? Fantastic. I lucked out. We only have one in the area, and being the only game in town, they could really be a piece of work. But they aren’t. They care about the customers as soon as they walk in the door. Sure, they want to make a buck, otherwise why open a store? But they aren’t going to pressure you to make that buck, and they really are concerned about you leaving happy and staying happy. They want you vaping. And they won’t even get mad when you tell them you bought juices online! LOL!
I am very happy to report that just recently they expanded… Into a real storefront!!!! They are open seven days a week now in a real store with windows and everything! LOL! I went in a few days after their official store opening and was very impressed. A young lady was doing a fantastic job hand painting their logo onto a wall. There were sofas and a TV, inviting the customer to sit down and hang out. All of their products were proudly displayed, and you could sample every flavor they sold via the juices in their own clearomizers and a “condom” you could request from the staff. Taste to your heart’s content!
They were also busy, which I was thrilled to see, especially midweek.
But this is a vendor I would highly recommend. They are available to their customers when needed and extremely knowledgeable about their products. They sell nothing to you that they have not tested themselves. And they actually care about their customers.
So drop in on them! If you are NC local, they are located at 6405 Westgate Road, Suite 109, Raleigh, NC 27617, and are open 11:00 to 7:00 seven days a week. Not local? Click here to check them out. They carry lots and lots of items including Joyetech (eGo), Dekang, Lava Juice, everything from basic 510 to mods.
