Owner: Marc Slis
Originally from Detroit, Michigan Marc Slis purchased 906 Vapor in October of 2015. Marc is graduate of Michigan Technological University. Upon graduation with a bachelor's degree in Geology, Marc went to work in the petroleum industry as a Geophysicist, processing marine seismic surveys at sea, internationally. After 15 years, Marc resigned his position and founded a consulting firm, Superior Seismic QC, LLC, managing the same marine seismic surveys around the world. 906 Vapor helped Marc to quit smoking in March of 2014 and about one and half years later he decided to purchase the store when the opportunity arose. He enjoys hunting, fishing and snowshoeing in the beautiful Keweenaw wilderness.
Although some vaping products do contain various levels of nicotine and are used as a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes, Marc wants to spread the word in the UP that not all vaping liquids contain nicotine. Instead people who choose to vape can do so without inhaling any source of nicotine at all by choosing a nicotine-free liquid.
The shop is a "judge-free, pressure-free zone" to learn about vaping and buy the necessary products to vape. That means in no way will Marc himself, or his employees, pressure anyone to buy products or judge those who choose to vape with no nicotine levels at all. Instead the shop is designed to professionally inform and aid those interested in vaping. In fact, those who currently do not use any nicotine products but are interested in vaping are encouraged to choose e-liquid flavors without any nicotine, where as those who currently smoke some form of nicotine are encouraged to switch to vaping that provides a similar nicotine level to start but is a healthier alternative to traditional smoking.
