All about da VAPE Ltd was born from passion, experience, and a lack of local choice. Our first store opened in July 2015, and then in November 2015 we launched our website. By 2017, the store had to double its counter and shelf space due to an ever-expanding selection of liquids and hardware couple with huge public demand. Around this time, we also started opening until 7pm every Tuesday and during December we trialled opening the store on Sundays, which was so popular that we now open from 10:00 until 16:00 every Sunday. Our staff love working Sundays…or else! (That’s a joke, they’re genuinely fine with it 🙂 )
Back in 2015 when you walked down the High Street in Deal you were very unlikely to see someone with a Vape or E-cig; the only plumes you would see were from combustible cigarettes. This was more than likely due to the lack of awareness of the benefits of E-cigarettes and Vape compared to smoking. Before the shop had even opened, there were doubts about how long it would last once it did. There were even letters objecting to the store sent to the KM Mercury from a local councillor. We just crossed our fingers and hoped for the best!
When the store finally opened in 2015, we were equally surprised and overjoyed to see just how popular it became almost immediately. Since then, the popularity of e-cigarette use has grown exponentially in Deal, and we feel that the population has become far more educated about the benefits of Vape and E-cigarettes versus combustible cigarettes. We hope that the friendly team in our Deal store has contributed to this effect.
