Have you ever walked into a head shop and thought “this is dull”? It seems like every smoke shop in the industry is trying to cultivate an “edge” but all they can come up with is a single glass case full of water pipes and a colorful sign.
A true headshop should be bursting with life and color. Variety is not just the name of the game – it is only one of the names of the game. There’s more than one way to make customers feel really appreciated and involved, and one head shop in Ft Lauderdale, FL is pulling it off.
If you’re in their area, here’s what you need to know.
Selfie and Save – Really!
Many smoke shops (and other retail joints, for that matter) run basic sales that involve jacking prices up slightly and then putting a discount sticker over the old price with a new, lower price (which was the same as the regular price in the first place).
Doesn’t sound like an actual promotion, if you ask us. Well, one shop in south Florida is changing that paradigm.
It’s not just self-righteous glitz and glam that typifies The Hip Cat Smoke Shop, which has two locations in south Florida, with one in Ft. Lauderdale and one in Pompano Beach. They actually put their money where their mouth is and give back to their customers.
For instance, they’re running a special promotion that benefits them and their customers.
If you’re in south Florida, take a selfie or a group picture and send it to them (check out their Instagram or connect with them on their website, TheHipCatSmokeShop.com).
If they feature your picture on their website, then guess what – you just scored a ticket to 20% off anything – anything! – in their store. Just visit them at one of their locations in south Florida to reap the rewards of your efforts!
Now, for the glitz and glam part. It might be true that almost all of what makes a head shop great is, you know, the actual selection that they offer. That’s true of The Hip Cat Smoke Shop (they offer a lot of variety!) but the keyword here is “almost.”
Atmosphere makes a pretty big impression too and it should not be understated. The Hip Cat Smoke Shop has that aspect covered, too.
They Support Local Artists, Too
Entering one of The Hip Cat’s locations is a full-blown sensory experience. Their shops feature wall-to-wall murals done by local artists. This allows them to accomplish two objectives – setting the mood and giving back to the community while patronizing the arts.
There’s more. The Hip Cat Smoke Shop’s cases are full of spoon pipes, dab rigs, water pipes, and just downright appealing specimens of heady glass – featuring, of course, numerous examples of handiwork produced by local glassblowers.
So, you might say that the aesthetics and the fundamental business of The Hip Cat’s Operations are community-minded.
They Pack Variety, Too
Interested in what sorts of heady glass this self-ordained head shop in Ft Lauderdale, FL can offer? Take a trip to one of their two locations. It’s worth the visit.
They have a shop in Ft. Lauderdale as well as one in Pompano Beach, and both of them are stocked to the ceiling (not literally) in glass pipes, grinders, rolling papers, and other smoking accessories.
If you need it to properly enjoy a smoking session, they carry it. But don’t take our word for it, visit their shop in Fort Lauderdale (or, if you’re closer to Pompano Beach, take a trip there). You won’t regret it!
