The Vaping Studio opened in September of 2013 in Hopkins, MN under the ownership and guidance of Paula Williams. When the store opened, we started with a very minimal selection of 650mah and 900mah batteries, and a small variety of flavors. As the store slowly began picking up speed, Paula brought in new employees who added flavors of their own, and who also began to notice new trends within the vaping community. As the Vaping Studio continued to follow trends, set a few trends, and expand their flavor line, our business continued to grow, and continues to do so to this day.
Fast forward to today, and the Vaping Studio now sells 120 active flavors, and also holds the recipes for close to another 100 flavors that customers made custom requests to prior to the August 8th lockdown by the FDA. We have also expanded our inventory of sub-ohm tanks, box mods, and herbal/CBD products. With all of this expansion, however, we never forgot the demographic that helped us grow the way we did; the beginners.
Most stores, we've realized, only carry large box mods, sub-ohm tanks, and High-VG lines of e-liquid. Because we are aware that this can be very intimidating to new vapers, the Vaping Studio has an entire selection in our brick and mortar store dedicated to hyper-ohm/beginner friendly devices. Along with this, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch education and information to all of our customers, and even to those curious about vaping who aren't interested in a purchase at the moment. At our store, education and a customer making the right purchase is more important to us that making a huge sale off of every customer. We believe this is why customers always come back.
