Yakima gets its first vaping shop

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima has its first vaping shop. Vaping is a term for inhaling water vapor through an e-cigarette.

The new store on Summitview is called The Vape Spot. You have to be 18 or older to vape.

Co-owner Carrie Bertrand says she offers flavored juices that have nicotine and some without.

She says vaping helped her and her father quit smoking.

"Personally, I would say more so it's been beneficial to watch my father quit after 45 years," Bertrand said. "He had COPD, and all of the symptoms of the COPD have since gone away."

The store had a soft opening about three weeks ago. The Vape Spot's grand opening is on Saturday.
