Thanks to the exponential rise in popularity of vape culture, there are now so many places to purchase e-juice that it can be difficult to choose the right outlet for your particular needs.

Cloudstix is a top UK supplier of e-juices and e-cigarettes. In this article, we explore some of the places you’re most likely to find Cloudstix and vape hardware – and go through the pros and cons of each to help you decide which works best for you.

Specialist High Street Stores

It’s now extremely rare to find a high street or shopping district without at least one vape shop. Some may be dedicated to particular brands, while others may stock a range of products.


Many high street vape stores allow you to sample products before you buy, so you know exactly what you’re getting. You’re also likely to get individual attention and service from knowledgeable salespeople when you visit.


If you live out of town, you may have to travel some way before you find a vape shop that meets your requirements. You can only visit during opening times – and situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic may cause closures, meaning you’ll have to seek products elsewhere.

Additionally, there is usually a very tight limit on how much product a high street store can stock, which means that new lines are relatively rare and you may not get a huge amount of variety – particularly if they only stock a couple of brands.

Finally, vape stores may not be for you if you dislike being pressured into a purchase. Many are staffed by eager, knowledgeable employees who are very keen to make a sale. That’s great if you definitely want to buy something – not so much if you’re just browsing.

Convenience Stores

Corner shops, small “express” stores, garages and service stations are all likely to stock a few items of hardware and a small collection of e-juices for the benefit of those passing through.


The clue is in the name – “convenience” is key with these outlets, and you may find that there is one just around the corner from where you live. Many – particularly those attached to garages – tend to open late, too.


It’s highly unlikely that you’ll find more than a single brand, with two or three e-juice flavour options, at a convenience store. These locations tend to rely on there being no other option nearby.

What’s more, you’re less likely to find liquids at a great price here – often for the same reason.

Online Retailers

Shopping online for e-liquid is perhaps the most popular approach, particularly following the forced closures of the COVID-19 pandemic. With numerous online outlets available, there’s a great deal of choice.


Because of the endless range available, you can pick and choose to your heart’s content – customising your vaping experience and trying new flavours and ratios all the time.

Online suppliers such as Cloudstix are keen to keep prices low – charging between 10% and 40% less than other major outlets – so you’re likely to save money, too.

These retailers are often able to access far more stock, too, so items are less likely to sell out and new lines are regularly introduced.


It can be difficult to know whether you’ll like a certain flavour of e-liquid just by reading the description online. Many sites help you here by enabling reviews and comments on their products, but you’ll always be taking something of a gamble when purchasing.

What’s more, virtually anyone can set up an online business. You need to be sure that the seller is legitimate and knowledgeable about the products they’re selling, so you don’t end up buying something from them that is unsuitable.

Fortunately, Cloudstix works closely with the leading manufacturers who supply their hardware and e-juices, and employ a team that is exceptionally knowledgeable about the range of products on offer. You can find plenty of information about the business right here.

For ultimate convenience, affordability and the opportunity to easily try new flavours and products, online shopping is the way to go – as long as you are confident in the integrity of the supplier and the items you intend to buy.
