Conveniently located on North Wickham, it was easy to find Fluent. I chose to go on a Sunday morning, close to their 10 AM opening time, hoping to avoid the crowds. It worked, I was the only customer when I walked in. Cool.
The building is a relatively new one, with a modern, pleasant interior, complete with the obligatory Nice Waiting Area. They don't have the big, cushy chairs I've seen in other places but still, it could be worse and since I didn't have to wait, it's all good.
The staff was friendly and informative, but since I don't have my permanent card yet, it took a little extra time to get checked in. Once inside though, the staff was great about taking the extra time to explain products I'd never tried before. As a first time customer, I got a discount and a free battery with my vape purchase, and free is never bad, right? The selection of products, while not voluminous is still pretty dang good and barring shortages on particular items, you should be able to find what you want. While I don't feel the prices are quite as competitive as they might be, they're still not bad and I was happy with my purchases when I walked out.
All things considered, it was a pleasant experience. I'll be back.
