Vapor Eruption LLC in Everett Mall

Vapor Eruption LLC is veteran owned and opens this weekend

The grand opening is set for Monday inside the Macy’s wing of the Everett Mall for Vapor Eruption LLC, a store that sells electronic cigarettes. Co-owner Jeremy Wilson is an active duty Naval officer and his wife is recently retired from the Navy. “We plan on employing four people to start, with more hires possible as we near the Holidays,” said Wilson. It’s the first business owned by the two veterans who were inspired by the success of other veterans who have opened similar stores after leaving the service. Wilson says all of the liquids used in the e-cigarettes are made in the USA and he’s excited about introducing people to vapor instead of smoke. Wilson says, “Our hope is to switch people from tobacco to e-cigarettes due to the decreased cost, increase in flavor combinations, ability to get their nicotine fixes almost anywhere, including most places that have smoking bans, and because of the decrease in the environmental footprint that these will leave, as there are no cigarette butts to throw away.” You can find out more about the Wilson’s and their new store by clicking here to visit their website.
