In the past year, our lobby has transformed into a magnificent retail shop. A lot of planning, designing, and old-fashioned elbow grease went into the transformation, and we wanted to give a look inside of the shop’s development. Here’s a photographic timeline of our retail shop, and some of the hard work that went into it!
Phase 1: Blank Slate
When Mt Baker Vapor first arrived in Mesa, we had a huge, vacant entryway. The imagination reels when faced with such a huge, open space. This room would change drastically in the coming months!
Phase 2: The Lobby phase
Once we settled a bit, we made the entryway into a lobby. This space was still very open, with tons of room for development. We had a desk, a few couches, a little table for vape magazines, and that’s about it!
Phase 3: Construction Begins
Our fist display racks and shelves are installed by our wonderful Facilities team. A big, Mesa-themed logo was wrapped over the window, and the walls were painted Mt Baker Vapor blue!
Phase 4: POS System
Any retail store needs a point-of-service system. We set up the system, and hung Landon Simon’s priceless Mt Baker Vapor jumpsuit on proud display!
Phase Five: Displays
Our graphics team made some high-fidelity graphics commemorating our top 25 flavors, which we hung about the wall. A beautiful window-wrap was applied, featuring our new blue bottles.
Phase 6: Stocking the Shelves
Finally, we stocked the shelves with Mt Baker Vapor, GWAR, and Photonic E Liquid. This was a labor of love, and it was a proud moment to see all of our precious e liquid on display!
Phase 7: Good to Go!
At long last, the retail store was ready for our grand opening! Customers drove from across the state to experience our retail store first-hand. With our first Arizona retail shop setting a precedent, who knows how many Mt Baker Vapor shops will spring up elsewhere?
