AVAIL Vapor Opens 100th Store Nationally; 30th In Virginia


Touted as the largest American manufacturer and retailer of premium e-liquids, AVAIL Vapor has marched down its road of growth and expansion with the opening of its 100th retail store; and the 30th in the e-liquid giant’s home state of Virginia.

Founded in 2013 by partners James Xu, Donovan Phillips, and Cole Smith, AVAIL Vapor has been leading the vapor product industry in creating premium liquid with ingredients sourced from North American suppliers.

Located just 1.5 miles from the widely recognized Potomac Yard Center in Alexandria, the newly opened storefront will be open every day of the week, with the retail space measuring a whopping 1,500 square-feet.

More than 70 premium e-liquid flavors will be available for sampling and purchasing by customers 18 years of age and older, according to a statement released by the company.

“We are excited to celebrate the opening of our 100th store because it is a testament to the hard work and dedication that we have to our customers and to the e-liquid industry,” said James Xu, founder of AVAIL Vapor.

All AVAIL e-liquids are “created within a state-of-the-art ISO certified class 6 clean room,” the company says, and that all of the e-liquid they produce is “gluten free, vegan, and contain(s) no preservatives or dyes.”

To meet impeccable standards of customer service in a time when AVAIL continues to grow as a brand, four new employees have been hired for the location, with each employee specially
trained to educate customers on e-liquids and vaping devices.
