Nevada Vapor Supply, 206 N. Carson St., will hold a grand opening Saturday at which it will introduce electronic cigarette devices and starter kits to Carson City.
The store, which opened earlier this year, is located across from City Hall and plans to provide music by a disc jockey, finger food and libations during 4-9 p.m. event.
“Come vape with us,” was the come-on slogan in a flier ballyhooing the grand opening of the city’s second vapor e-cigarette location. The first, Tasty Vapes, opened late last year a few weeks before Nevada Vapor Supply. Tasty Vapes is located at 101 Hot Springs Road, Unit 8H.
At Nevada Vapor Supply, Dennis Lindsay is one member in a family of four operating the downtown outlet. The other partners are Marilee Lindsay and Chad and Nina McIntosh. Lindsay said at the grand opening event this weekend, along with food and libations that include wine, beer and nonalcoholic beverages, the outlet will have raffles and discounts on e-cigarette products.
“We’re basically changing cigarette smoking one life at a time,” said Lindsay. “There are a lot of people switching.”
An electronic cigarette is a device that simulates tobacco smoking patented in 1963. Generally an e-cigarette uses a heating element known as an atomizer to vaporize a liquid solution, which based on user preference may include nicotine or be without it. The liquid used in such devices commonly is called e-juice or e-liquid, and often is made up of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and/or polyethylene glycol mixed with flavors.
