Halo Retailer Spotlight: E-Cig Gallery of Laguna Hills, CA

E-Cig Gallery owner Ed Bolin took his years as an art gallery owner as inspiration for his vaping shop, and feels vaping has enabled him to get closer to his loved ones …

Halo: How long have you been in business?

Ed: Since December 2012.

Halo: Do you have more than one location?

Ed: We have a beautiful retail shop in Laguna Hills, California and our Wholesale and Distribution business is located in Irvine, California.

Halo: Where did the name E-Cig Gallery come from?

Ed: I owned an art gallery for years and wanted to open up an e-cig store with an art gallery theme.

Halo: Why did you start selling vape products?

Ed: Like many, I struggled to quit smoking. I was finally able to quit using e-cigarettes in 2012. I wanted to share my experience with others, so I opened the retail location and then Wholesale and Distribution.

Halo: What do you like best about selling vape products?

Ed: I love helping folks new to vaping get started and I really love the stories from customers coming back into the shop and letting us know that they’ve switched completely to vaping products.

Halo: What do you want customers to know about your store?

Ed: We only sell the highest quality hardware and juice from the best vendors in the industry. We keep our shop well stocked with a huge variety so anyone can stop in and find what they need — from the customer brand new to vaping all the way to the most passionate enthusiasts.

Halo: What’s your customers’ favorite Halo flavor?

Ed: Tribeca.

Halo: What’s your customers’ favorite Halo flavor category?

Ed: Tobacco.

Halo: What’s the first/most common question customers ask you?

Ed: If people have quit smoking using e-cigarettes.

Halo: Do you vape?

Ed: Yes. Four and a half years (now).

Halo: What does vaping mean to you?

Ed: It means freedom and a better sense of well-being. I am no longer separated from friends and family at social events, I can travel and enjoy life in a way that I couldn’t when I was smoking.

Halo: What’s your favorite Halo flavor?

Ed: Tribeca.

Halo: Do you think the public has misconceptions about vaping?

Ed: I think there is some misinformation about vaping, but we’re getting better as an industry and more mainstream. I am positive about our collective future.

E-Cig Gallery is located at 24781 Alicia Parkway, Suite D in Laguna Hills, California. Be sure to stop by when you’re in the area!
