Vaporin continues expansion of The Vape Store retail locations

RBR Staff Writer Published 22 September 2014

Vaporin, a distributor and marketer of vaporizers and e-liquids products, today announced they have signed a lease for the opening of another Vape Store. Located in North Fort Myers, Florida, the new store is positioned in a highly visible and heavily trafficked area.

The Company is using cash flow from existing Vape Store locations to fund the development of the new store; no additional investment is needed.

Retail store sales continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of the vapor market. In fact, the number of vape stores have tripled over the last year. According to a recent report issued by Wells Fargo, the e-cigarette market has decreased $400 million from $1.4 billion to $1 billion while vaporizers, tanks, and mods have increased $400 million from $1.1 billion to $1.5 billion. The retail vape store segment alone has also grown to be a $1 billion market.

The Company recognizes this trend and is focused on the expansion of The Vape Store retail locations. Vaporin, Inc. has plans to aggressively accelerate the growth of their retail store model with continued acquisitions of existing stores as well as opening new store locations. Currently, the Company forecasts approximately $650,000 in annual revenue per vape store.

CEO Scott Frohman said, "The opening of another Vape Store is part of our strategy to continuously build out our multi-pronged revenue model. We are very pleased with the production from our current Vape Stores as the cash flow generated has enabled us to build out this new location without taking on any additional investment. This allows us to increase shareholder equity as we continue to execute on our business plan. We are very confident in our ability to quickly turn retail stores cash flow positive and will continue to move aggressively towards expanding our retail store, online sales and distribution market shares."
