888 Vapour has a chain of 11 stores across the Midlands supported by the manufacturing and distribution power of Juice Sauz.
As a UK based family-owned business, we’re passionate about working with like-minded people who can see the benefits of vaping as a lifestyle choice over smoking, and the exciting opportunities and freedom being your own boss will bring you.
Why 888 Vapour?
Since we opened our first store in 2014, we’ve grown exponentially and have a brand that has been built on trust and reputation. Our ambition is to become the best retail chain of vape stores across the UK and we’ve worked to provide exceptional levels of customer service and maintain an up-to-date catalogue of e liquids and e-cigarettes. Our customers' reviews speak for themselves.
Right from the initial conversation with us, our team of business and industry professionals are here to guide you through the process step by step. As part of Juice Sauz, 888 Vapour has the backing of our own manufacturing and distribution networks, to increase efficiency and profitability. Partnering with us gives you 100% confidence that we’re in it together and your success is our success.
All training is provided as part of our partnership with you and we offer unrivalled levels of support and business advice, from starting your own brand of e-liquid or which brands will bring you the very best profit margins. Our continued training and development of your staff will ensure that your customers will get in-store expert advice every time, and come back to your store time and time again.
