When it comes to e-cig technology and e-liquid, Gone With The Smoke offers only top quality products.

Their e-liquid sources have been scrutinized to bring you only United States made, organic and top level pharmaceutical grade products.
The company offers a 10% discount on their website for first time buyers who share about the shop on social media. Customers rave about the quality products and superior customer service. “I don’t normally write reviews on yelp,” said one year-long customer. “This is the best place I’ve found to make vapor purchases.

They believe in helping people quit smoking and adapt to an alternative lifestyle. One customer calls them “one of the best new vape shops that has the best low price on juice.” He also praises the knowledge of the owners saying they have “real expert workers.”

Juicebox Vapor Shop opened in 2013 with the mission to help smokers stop and move to the healthier alternative of vaping. Offering a wide selection of vaporizers, juices, and accessories, the shop also has a vapor bar where guests can sample flavors. The shop prides itself on focusing primarily on the customer, and visitors to the store certainly agree that they back up that claim. “I’m always greeted and helped immediately,” said one customer. “The staff seems like a close group of friends, which keeps the atmosphere cheerful and relaxed.”
One vaper moved from Seattle and was having a hard time finding a shop that fit his needs. He calls Juicebox Vapor a “godsend, or a curse if you account for how much money I spend on vaping.” The shop is cool and clean and has a nice modern feel.
