Vaporifics Grand Opening in Paris Texas Offering E-Cigarettes and Supplies
This Article Brought To You By:
Vaporifics celebrated the opening of their new store today located at 201 North Collegiate Ste 275 in Paris, Texas. You can find them in Tejas plaza next to Paris Coffee Company. Mix 107.7 was on hand doing a live broadcast and giving away lots of prizes. Food was readily available and a taste contest was held. Owner Kathy Shadwell shared her story with us about how she got into the E-Cig market.
“I bought my first E-Cig in June 2009 because my first grand baby was coming and did not want to smoke around her. After doing so, I never purchased another pack of cigarettes again! I began to tell all of my friends and family how wonderful this new device was and started ordering for others and teaching them how to use an electronic cigarette. That is how I got the idea that this could become a way to have my own business. I started the online website www.vaporifics.com in January of 2010 and was selling starter kits out of my home as well. It became so popular, that I had to open a kiosk in the VF Outlet Mall in Sulphur Springs, TX in May 2010. In October, we moved from the mall and now have our own store at 233 Linda Drive Suite A. My customers travel from many places like Texarkana, Greenville and a large amount from Paris which seemed to be the logical place for me to expand my business. We opened our new shop in December 2012, at 201 North Collegiate Ste 275 in Paris, Texas. and word is spreading fast!”
For those who have not visited Vaporifics and might be on the fence about trying the product you can stop in and try one of them. They are knowledgeable about their product and many flavors are available. We tried flavors such as Black Cherry, Spearmint, Tobacco, Menthol, and even Coffee. Their wall of juice contains lots of flavors to choose from.
Along with the new shop Vaporifics has several new items they are proud to add to their lineup of E-Cigs. For those who are unsure of the investment, they now offer a $25 start-up kit that includes a USB charger. “These kits are great for those people who want to give vapor a try before buying a full kit.” Kathy told us. Another new item is the new kit that includes a handy case to carry your extra batteries and atomizers as well as neon tanks and tips. For those who already have the products offered at Vaporifics a new VV Pass-through which is a power supply source that replaces the need for the battery with something that plugs into a USB port. These are great for vaping on the go or while at your computer without draining your battery. They offer variable voltage so your 3.0v, 3.6v. 4.2v, and 4.8v versions can use them safely. They are compatible with all ego/510 threads and can connect to any usb.
When we asked Kathy about why people choose vapor over traditional cigarettes she had this to say.
“Most customers are able to exclusively use an E-Cig after purchasing one and not buy cigarettes and some just reduce their usage of cigarettes or use them in places where “Analogs”, (traditional Cigarettes) are prohibited. The satisfaction from the E-Cig is very comparable to smoking but without all the tar and carcinogens. I am always happy when my customers come in and tell me its been____ days since I smoked and I am proud for them! It is also much cheaper than smoking analogs because a 10ml bottle of E-Liquid is $6 and is equal to a whole carton of cigarettes! The average smoker who smokes a pack of cigarettes at $6 a pack can save $100 to $200 a month and if it is a married couple who both smoke that’s enough savings for a car payment!”
“I research weekly as to the safety of using an electronic cigarette and read about research that is currently being conducted. It is a new product and studies are underway now as I write this. Are they safe? What I can tell you is the reduction in harm compared to smoking is tremendous! Traditional cigarettes are filled with over 4000 chemicals and 599 additives, as well as 69 carcinogens like formaldehyde, lead, arsenic, and the list goes on. Anyone can read this link and find out exactly what they get when they smoke a real cigarette.
Now back to an electronic cigarette, the FDA has not approved of an E-cig or its ingredients but I can tell you that I have doctors that send patients to me because they see its benefits as a harm reduction product. If you’re going to smoke, at least reduce the amount of chemicals you’re putting in your body and here is a place to read and research, (www.casaa.org) I have personally seen 45 year smokers who have been able to exclusively use an electronic cigarette and reduce the amount of nicotine over time until they were off of nicotine entirely. Then they reduced the amount; they use the electronic cigarette until they no longer feel the need for using it. I have also seen people with COPD who use an E-Cig and no longer need their inhalers, and people who are on oxygen and no longer need to use it. I can also tell you that people enjoy not smelling like a cigarette and generally tell me they feel better about themselves. So, over the past three years I feel in some small way I am helping people.”
