Strasbourg is not (yet) a jungle
For now, the number of specialized vendors grows too: Econoclope is the first store to open in Strasbourg in 2012. Both Strasbourg stalls, we must now add Haguenau, Metz and Sarreguemines. The brand also says on its website wanting to “develop other outlets”. E-Cigarette, My Free Cig, Sweet & Vapes, Alsa Cigs, Vap’n Co or Break Cig’arrete also been added outlets.
Strasbourg but is not yet a jungle for investors, according to Almond Valladier. In 2010, 24 year old student recorded his SIRET of autoentrepreneur with her partner in creating My Free Cig, a website selling MODs, advanced electric atomizers and reserved for customer initiated. Since this summer, Almond and his companion are partners in a limited liability company, more suited to their revenue structure:
“Even if the same products in the shop are found almost everywhere, everyone gets around to find customers. And as we sell very little in Strasbourg, we are not really concerned with competition. For now, I would say that everyone finds his place”.
Shared by our interlocutors notice, including a priori when a trade competitor opened in the same street . On the avenue Aristide Briand, Bratislav Turudic prepares to voisiner with Marc Benoit, a passionate vapoteur who sold his goods also on canvas, next to his business road, before settling for good: Pause Store Cig’arrete expected to open in early 2014 . Installed first on the scene, “Brat” is not worried:
“Benoit is a friend. We will be complementary in our products: rather sell him MODs, as we sell 80% of people who discover the vape”.
