Independent forecourt operator Chipstead of Cranleigh Ltd has adopted the new vapestore retail solutions format from Vapouriz.
The partnership will see Chipstead of Cranleigh Ltd install a ‘behind the counter solution’ that includes storage and display shelves for all hardware and e-liquids at its listed building.
The newly refurbished 485 sq. ft shop at Little Manor Service Station is housed in the 15th century, half-timbered, Little Manor building that is arguably the oldest secular building in Cranleigh.
“Chipstead of Cranleigh has been a valued customer of ours since 2015,” commented Ron Booker, head of retail at Vapouriz.
“With cigarette sales declining, this is the perfect instance of independent retailers taking advantage of the high profit margins within the vaping category, by stocking a reputable brand that consumers recognise and want whilst also offering current smokers a much healthier alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes.”
Vapouriz brands available at this branch are Vapouriz Premium, Vapouriz 50|50, Pocket Fuel, Pure Evil, Double Drip, Double Drip Nic Salts, Double Drip 50|50 and the new Bliss CBD Co range. Vapouriz hardware will also be available.
William Lambert, managing director of Chipstead of Cranleigh, said: “Becoming a Vapouriz franchisee makes perfect sense for us as we were already Cranleigh’s best stocked vape retailer. We wanted to expand and refine our offer within the constraints of our historic building whilst delivering an effective retail solution that would draw people to our store; the well-established Vapestore brand does exactly that.”
