7 types of retail outlets that should sell disposable vapes
Specialty vape shops
These are retail stores that specialize in selling vapes and related products. While traditionally they sold vape mods and tanks, disposable vapes, and the next generation of disposable replaceable vapes like Wotofo’s nexPod are the most in-demand vaping products in vape shops today. Vape stores are often popular with consumers who are interested in vaping, and can be an effective outlet for selling disposable vapes.
Tobacconists are the first and obvious retailer if we exclude specialist vape shops from our retailer list. They already have strong repeat business with the exact customer profile of a vape user. Tobacconists are also easily accessible, often located in high-traffic areas like shopping malls and busy streets making them the ideal outlet for selling vapes. Most consumers who frequent tobacconists expect to find a range of vaping products available in-store.
Like tobacconists many newsagencies are traditional retail outlets for selling cigarettes making them an ideal outlet for selling vapes. Many of the traditional customers are transitioning from smoking to vaping so it makes sense to continue to service your customer base with products they want.
If you work in a liquor store we don’t need to tell you how many people buy cigarettes with their alcohol. Disposable vapes is the new, healthier alternative to smoking and consumers expect to be able to purchase their vaping supplies with their alcohol. Liquor stores that sell disposable vapes can add a significant income stream to their already popular product lines.
Convenience stores are a popular retail outlet for disposable vapes, as they are easily accessible and often located in high-traffic areas. As the word implies convenience is what these shops sell, so it makes sense to add disposable vapes to the list of convenience products consumers are looking for in a convenience store. These stores can be an effective outlet for selling disposable vapes to a wide range of customers and if the convenience store already sells cigarettes and other nicotine-based products adding disposable vapes is a no-brainer.
Gas stations are another popular retail outlet for disposable vapes, as they are often located in high-traffic areas and are easily accessible to consumers. Gas stations, like tobacconists, newsagents, liquor stores, and convenience stores are identified by the public as somewhere where they can purchase cigarettes. With cigarettes rapidly being replaced by vapes, gas stations can be an effective outlet for selling disposable vapes to a diverse customer base.
Online retailers are proven to be effective outlets for selling disposable vapes. Ideal online retails include vape shops, specialty stores, and other websites that sell adult-related products. These retailers often have a large customer base and can provide a convenient shopping experience for customers.
Adding vapes to the cigarette counter at the grocery store or supermarket is a great way to increase customer service. The shop already possesses the required tobacco license for selling vapes so it is easy to add a new product range under the license. For large national supermarket chains partnering with a reputable disposable vape manufacturer like Wotofo to stock their brand or alternatively considering your own branded OEM vape product.
Overall, there are a number of retail outlets that can be effective outlets for selling disposable vapes. Retailers should consider the specific needs and preferences of their target market in order to determine the best vaping products for their customers.
