For years, James and Kristen were heavy smokers and hated every minute of it. After they were married, a decision was made to make a change. James & Kristen started Kalamazoo Vapor in 2010 out of the Kalamazoo Electric Motor Shop. Shortly after seeing the demand for an alternative to smoking, they opened their first location on Portage Rd in Kalamazoo, MI. 10 years and 11 stores later, James & Kristen have seen their mom and pop shop turn into a legacy.
