I am unsure if there are 5 locations or 4 locations for Vapor Time in Alabama: they say “5” but also “4” depending on where you look, but only list 4 addresses on the Vapor Time website. Maybe a new shop is just about to be launched. Even if Vapor Time only has 4 branches of their e cig store, that is impressive for any small business.
Vapor Time shops are located in Mobile, Saraland, Spanish Fort, and Dothan, Alabama but you can also find them on Facebook, at various events, charity fundraisers, and on their website. There are currently no website sales, so use this page to give you an introduction to products and e-liquid flavors.
Facebook is an excellent place for a business to get their name out there. A small number of likes (less than 1,000) suggests they could do more with their social media outlet, or that not as many people like them as there are people shopping at the store. It does not always follow that customers are loyal or engaged enough to post comments and reviews.
That only happens if they are really mad or really happy (or if there is an incentive.) There have been some negative reviews, but any store with 4 branches is doing well by default.
Vapor Time posts photos on the Facebook page, usually of the people who run their stores. You get a sense of how much fun they are having and what a team they seem to be, especially when viewing images of them in Las Vegas at Vaping Expo 2014.
Vapor Time Flavors
The shop carries labels well known around the country. Some of these are Space Jam, King’s Crown, High Caliber, Juice E Juice, Flavorz by Joe, Mad Alchemist, Mount Baker Vapor, and Cyclops. Some selections are short in spite of many options they might have chosen.
Others are short because that is all a company makes. Space Jam’s menu is enlarged upon with descriptions of flavors. Some speak for themselves (High Caliber’s Cuban Cigar; Juice E Juice Sweet Fruit Punch and Caramel Macchiato). Try Poppa (berries and cream) by Flavorz by Joe, EC Blend’s Dragon’s Blood and RY4, or Fairy Dust or Winter’s Bite by Mad Alchemist. There are over 60 flavors to choose from.
Vapor Time Review: Hardware
Vapor Time shops carry major brands such as Vision, Aspire, and Kanger. Check them out for box mods, spinners, tanks, eGo 650-, 900-, and 1100-mAh batteries, cases, and all your usual accessories. Select a starter kit packaged neatly in a zipper case and begin vaping in the way many consumers around Alabama and the United States have also begun: with a simple button-operated eGo.
I am surprised there has not been more activity on Facebook because of how involved Vapor Time is in their community. I know it looks good to contribute to or participate in charities, but there is usually some real community spirit behind such activities.
Vapor Time has been involved in several fundraisers to support local causes and is a sponsor for a car racing team. Their profile should be pretty big by now. Maybe the reason their “likes” are small is that they do not have a national audience, relying instead on locals for their business success. Vapor Time is also a member of their Chambers of Commerce, CASAA, and the American Lung Association.
