SOUTH SHORE, Ky. — A grand opening is on the horizon for That Vape Shop 2, located at 42 Plaza Drive in South Shore, Ky. which is set for Saturday, July 16, 2016, at 11 a.m.

Co-owners Carl and Denice Wellman are elated about opening their second vapor store, That Vape Shop 2 in South Shore, Ky. is set to open on July 16. The Wellmans are also owners of The Vape Shop, in Flatwoods, Ky. which opened in 2015. When asked what distinguishes That Vape 2 and their other location from stores selling the same type of products, Denice Wellman said it is the quality of their customer service and their store environment that sets their stores apart.

“My husband and I had both worked at a vape store at one point, then we just decided to open our own,” Denice Wellman said.”We actually opened the South Shore store on May 2nd of this year, but we wanted to have an official grand opening. I believe that it is the customer service and environment that we offer our customers. We put time and effort into providing service to our customers to meet their vapor needs. We want to make everybody feel comfortable that comes in, so that they can feel at home as soon as they walk through the door.”

That Vape Shop 2 offers affordable pricing, with products ranging from $9 to $20, and offers a variety of different flavors, according to Denice Wellman.

Store hours of operation of The Vape Shop 2 are Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., closed Sunday.

“We want to give people some time, and we also want to make sure that everybody knows about our new store location. It has been through word of mouth, and social media like Facebook that has been extremely helpful,” Denice Wellman said.

Co-owner, Carl Wellman, said interacting with the community makes running the business an enjoyable experience.

“There are several reasons that I enjoy That Vape Shop & That Vape Shop 2,” Carl Wellman said. “I absolutely love helping our community choose a healthier lifestyle over smoking. We have met so many wonderful people through our shops and we look forward to enjoying this journey with them. We have an awesome staff and I get to work with my wife everyday. When you enjoy what you do you never work a day an I can surely say I enjoy every day we are at That Vape Shop.”
