Another new vapor shop opens in the region


Another e-cigarette shop has opened in the region, this one called Mission Vapor at 174 Woodman Drive in the Airway Shopping Center in Riverside.

A ribbon-cutting and grand opening are scheduled for next weekend, April 5-6, but the vapor shop opened last week and is serving customers looking for an alternative to smoking cigarettes. E-cigarettes are battery-operated devices that heat liquid nicotine and flavors into a vapor that the user inhales.

Co-owner Doug Sullivan said Mission Vapor will likely open a second Dayton-area store, but a site has not yet been chosen.

Sullivan of Columbus co-owns the shop with his brother Greg Sullivan of Springboro and a third partner, Greg Andrews of Columbus. The trio intend to open shops in other regions in Ohio, Sullivan said.

Mission Vapor joins a wave of e-cigarette shops that have opened in recent months in the Dayton-Springfield area, including one, Mojo Vapes, that is poised to open its first of seven to 10 locations in the region in Huber Heights next week.

The industry faces the possibility of regulation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which is expected to announce restrictions to advertising, sales to minors and perhaps a limitation on “e-juice” flavors.

Sullivan, who smoked cigarettes for 21 years until trying e-cigarettes, said the Airway center’s proximity to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and Wright State University made the location attractive. “Our clientele is a diverse mix,” he said.

Mission Vapor is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, closed Sunday. For more information, go to the Mission Vapor Facebook page or call (937) 221-8808.
