Right in the heart of the biggest mall in the United States you will come across a friendly and knowledgeable, not to mention just plain cool, group of people working at Philadelphia’s top vape shop, Atlantic Vapor. The electronic cigarette has come a long way.
They recently enjoyed their grand opening and they are off to a running start helping people find an alternative to tobacco. How were they able to hit the ground running? Well, they may be a new vape shop but the people who made this happen are e-cig industry veterans that have been involved with electronic cigarettes since the first crude cig-a-likes made their way to the US.
Atlantic Vapor is owned and operated by the same industry pioneers that brought you Atlantic Cigs. Inside the relaxed and inviting atmosphere of their retail vape store, you will find the entire catalog of Atlantic Cigs products in addition to the e-cig industry’s hottest ecigs, mods, RDA’s, ejuices and more.
Just want to share a quick word about Atlantic’s own brand of e-liquid. They have quickly expanded their line of flavors to 37 with many more expected in the near future. Early reviews on Atlantic Cigs e-juice have been very positive. The ingredients are high quality, the flavors are highly regarded and the throat hit is very satisfying.
In fact, if you usually use a 24 mg nicotine e-liquid blend you may want to consider an 18 mg e-juice option, as the hit is stronger than with most e-liquid brands.
If you have any questions, you can always ask the friendly and knowledgeable staff at Atlantic Vapor. Consider them to be vaping ambassadors, you will be in good hands. They will sell you the e-cigarette that suits you, not the e-cig that they want to sell.
Today, most vapor cigarette stores strictly deal with advanced e-cigs and cater to the hobbyist. When a new person comes in they may try to sell them a complicated e-cigarette that demands time and attention to operate. For a hobbyist, it is fantastic! For the new person just looking to try vaping, it can be intimidating and more complex than what they were looking for.
This is not the case at Atlantic Vapor. They have everything from cig-a-likes to a range of e-juice blends to sophisticated RDAs and more. Whether you have been vaping for years or are just curious and want to kick some tires and see what e-cigs are all about, this is a vape shop that you can walk into and get what you need. They have much more variety than your run of the mill vapor store.
Atlantic Vapor vape shop is open from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Saturday and from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm on Sunday. It is located at 160 N Gulph Rd, King of Prussia, PA 19406, the massive King Of Prussia Mall.
King Of Prussia Mall Vape Shop
Once upon a time in the not too distant past, vaping and e-cigs were seen as a novelty that existed on the fringes. So much has changed in the last few years. Recently, vape was named word of the year.
Now, a vape shop is open for business in the heart of the ultimate symbol of American commerce, the massive King of Prussia Mall.
Atlantic Vapor shares a presence with iconic stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Cartier, Hermés, Louis Vuitton and more.
The folks at Atlantic Vapor are ideal ambassadors of e-cigarettes and vaping. Many people walking through the mall are bound to stop by out of sheer curiosity, they will find the help and information they need to become well-informed customers.
ECCR had an opportunity to interview Benton from Atlantic Vapor. Let’s see what is happening on the front lines of vaping in a mecca of commerce.
Benton truly enjoys the location in the mall, as there is a lot of hype and with only one vape shop in the mall, they have a captive audience. Benton was also kind enough to take some time to answer a few questions.
ECCR: What is the number one question that you are asked by people who are walking in to a vape shop for the first time?
Benton: The most common question is “Can I use e-cigs to quit smoking?” That is difficult to give direct answer. I can’t say yes but I can tell them my story. I was pack a day and it helped me quit, it can be done.
ECCR: What are today’s veteran vapers looking for in ecigs and e-juice?
Benton: Everybody wants something different. Experienced vapers are usually very well informed and they come to see us after doing a ton of research. There is no one thing that they fixate upon, they are interested in all types. Many are just looking for the best way to get more vapor.
ECCR: Which e-cig is your best-seller?
Benton: Probably the Innokin MVP but the Atlantic Nautilus is also at the top of the list. It is a lightweight mod that is easy to use and is great for a casual vape, not vapor clouds to make smog jealous! The Nautilus has a great hit and a lot of vapor.
It is also so easy to use with twist and click technology.
We also have a new battery for the Nautilus the new Mondo 1500 mAh battery.
Our new product is the Portal. The Portal is a universal e-cig cartridge compatible with most of the popular cig-a-like brands. There’s nothing else like it out there.
ECCR: What would you say is the most popular flavor for Atlantic Vapor customers?
Benton: Gibraltar Traditional and Iceland Menthol are the top two e-liquid flavors. Bermuda Sweet is also very popular, it is a classic tobacco flavor with a bit of tropical sweetness.
I refer people to Celtic Twist which is like a fresh strawberry menthol. Personally, I like to mix Kingston Rum e-liquid and Celtic Twist to make my own strawberry mojito flavor!
ECCR: Lastly, do you have any stories about customers whose lives have changed thanks to vaping?
Benton: There are a few but one that comes to mind is Charles. Charles is a general contractor from Philly. He had struggled with a 3 pack per day habit for years. One year later not only is he off of cigarettes he’s at zero nicotine vaping.
Thanks, Benton! It is always great to hear about what is happening at vapor stores around the country. Atlantic Cigs is an up and coming e-cig brand and their move to brick and mortar has made a splash.
So if you are in Philadelphia or visiting, check out the King Of Prussia mall and stop by Atlantic Vapor. The tropical flavor of the shop will take you away from the Philly winter and into a relaxed, inviting atmosphere.
If you want to give Atlantic Cigs a try, visit the online store where you can actually pick up a free e-cigarette with a cartridge purchase.
Congrats to Atlantic Vapor on their recent grand opening!
