Now let's take some time for a bit of nostalgia and look back at the history of VPZ and how we got here today!
Stopping smoking, especially on your own, is no easy feat and this is where the story of VPZ begins...
Our story started in 2012 when brothers and founders had a desire to stop smoking. One of whom started smoking at 11 years old back in '97, the other also started smoking at 11 in 2000...by the time 2006 came around, one was 18 and already smoking up to 40 cigarettes a day!
They both tried various ways to switch from cigarettes and found that vaping was the only thing that helped them kick the habit after discovering cigalikes on the 6th of December 2011! By January of 2012, they were no longer smokers and knew this would be an amazing opportunity so, registered a company and started to research the vaping industry.
On January the 4th of 2013, the brothers opened their first ever VPZ Store on Leith Walk, despite making a grand total of only £67.50 on their first day, the pair felt like this was a roaring success!
Neither of them had worked in retail before and they had learned how to use the till just the night before, but the store on Leith walk and the fact they had begun providing the community with quick and easy access to a safer alternative to smoking gave a huge sense of achievement. They had given the community access to vaping products, advice and support that was both convenient and local and felt incredible.
As the customer base of our Leith store started expanding and word-of-mouth started circulating, another 3 stores, Galashiels, Clerk Street and Perth opened that very same year due to popular demand, but this wasn’t enough. We needed to reach out to even more communities.
In 2014 VPZ opened a further 5 mainline stores and opened the first 5 franchise stores. Then, in 2015 more than doubled that number with 15 mainline stores and 12 franchise stores opening throughout the year.
The next thing we knew, in May 2016, we were welcoming our 50th store, VPZ Airdrie, to the team. Throughout the rest of 2016 the business continued to thrive, welcoming another 33 stores to our team and our sister company Absolute E-Juice who manufacture a large variety of our most popular selling e-liquids such as Darth Vapor and Luke skyvaper!
By September 2017, we were welcoming our 100th store and our first mainline English store - VPZ Crawley. It was time to move to a much larger office and manufacturing plant based in Newbridge, Edinburgh. This allowed us to house our ever expanding team of staff making communication and of course space, much better!
Between 2017 and 2020, we managed to open an incredible 79 VPZ stores across England, Scotland and Wales...AND rebranded from Vaporized to VPZ which was a huge team effort!
Now at over 150 vape stores nationwide, to finish off 2020, our sister company Absolute Ejuice created a fantastic open-pod device which is exclusive to VPZ, the AEQ which we can’t get enough of! We hope that you are all enjoying it just as much - perfect for beginners and experienced vapers alike!
We are proud to call ourselves the UK’s largest vaping retailer and thank you for all of the support you have shown us throughout the years! We couldn’t have done it without you! Long may it continue and please, help us celebrate with this fantastic vape offer of 25% off everything for the big day!
