Brick and Mortar Saturday

As a lot of you know, I switched to vaping about 6 months ago and although the journey has not been easy, it has made a huge difference in my life.  I started this blog in early August to try and put information out there into the community on juices becoming available in the market, and what you are likely to experience.  In the process between that, Instagram, Twitter, and now Facebook, I have met a ton of people and made some fabulous connections.  Honestly, I would say that vaping has made a huge difference to me on many levels.

At the same time, federal and state government are looking for ways to eliminate or severely restrict vaping at all levels.  Although some decisions I agree with, such as the sale to minors, there are several things that I don’t agree with.  A lot of governments have put the discussion on hold until the first of the year.

Many possible vapers or people curious to vaping have never had the full opportunity to educate themselves on what is involved.  Sure they could go on YouTube and find several videos explaining vaping, but with those come more questions.  The best source to get answers, to me at least, seems to be in your typical brick and mortar shop.

(Trust me, there is a point to all of this…)

Today is Tuesday, October 13th.  In 46 days, it will be what is typically known as “Small business Saturday”, where people show financial support to smaller businesses after the typical Black Friday.  What I propose is instead calling it “Brick and mortar Saturday”.

What does this mean?

I propose that every vaper do one of two things.

  1. Take a friend to a vaping shop that has thought about making the switch, and let them get a hands on experience with the devices, sample juices to see what the feeling is like as opposed to smoking cigarettes
  2. Or each vaper spends $100 in support of their local vape shop.
Now I realize this may be asking too much.  Some people may not be able to spend that kind of money or knows someone they can take to their local shop.  But honestly I think this will help to acknowledge the number of vapers across the world and to also show financial support for the work they put into keeping this alive.  To most of you, we wouldn’t have made a switch if it wasn’t for a local brick and mortar.
