Vape shop by the Petro and Pilot in Monee
When it comes to truck driver convenience, it doesn't get much better than the job done by Cool Clouds Vapor Shop in Monee Illinois. Locate yourself near a big city that truckers tend to go to a lot. Check. Find a location next to a truck stop. Check. Make it a truck stop where I can take my 10 hour break and get a shower and a hot meal while I'm there. Check. What if I can only fuel at TA/Petro or Pilot/Flying J? Are you going to try and tell me they've still got me covered? Check. If you're a trucker who vapes, there's literally no excuse for you not to check out the folks over at Cool Clouds Vapor Shop.
Sometimes the directions are complicated for these vape shops out on the road. Park here if you want to spend the night, there if you're just shopping, walk this way or take that shortcut. Not these guys. You ready? You don't even need a pen. I57 exit 355, go east to the Pilot or the Petro overflow lot. Fall out of bed, land in Cool Clouds. It's really almost that easy. Seriously, you know where Max's Red Hots is in that little plaza between the Pilot and Petro overflow lot? That's where these guys are located.
So, they're in a good spot if you're already stopping there, but what if you're cruising on by? Are they worth a stop? Well, here's what you're going to find at Cool Clouds Vapor Shop in Monee Illinois.

Now I got there shortly after they opened, and the lovely young lady working there told me they would be carrying more lines soon, but that is what they had while I was there. It's a pretty good lineup if you ask me. I've heard a ton of good things about Jimmy the Juice Man, and I tried one of their flavors from Republica Vapes while I was there. I'll get to that later. And yes, they do have a sample policy. I don't remember exactly what it was, but you have to pay something thanks to the FDA. Nothing crazy, you know the drill. On to the devices.

- Pioneer 4u

Let me get this out of the way quickly. I'm a fan of Smok Mods. They're not. So they're heavy on Sigelei, light on power devices from Smok. They have the tanks, coils, and whatnot. Just not much in the line of Smok mods. No biggie, just the way they roll over at Cool Clouds.
Now, on to that juice I was talking about. I bought a bottle of "Swish" from Republica Vapes while I was there. Man, is that stuff good if you're into tobaccos. It's along the lines of a Swisher Sweets styled cigar. Cheap cigar tobacco flavor with a nice strawberry twist and just a hint of honey to sweeten the whole thing up a little. If you're a tobacco flavor fan, you've got to check that one out while you are there.
Customer Service is great at Cool Clouds Vape Shop in Monee. While I was there, a woman came in who didn't know what she had or exactly what she needed. The sales rep figured out that her tank was an Aspire Cleito. The trouble was, she had broken the glass and couldn't get it off of the top of the tank, which unfortunately she hadn't brought with her. She gave her instructions on how to take it apart, and told her if she brought it back in they would try to fix it for her. Now mind you, she had purchased this tank in Florida somewhere. When the woman decided she wanted a new tank instead, she hooked her up with the best one for her device, not the most expensive one on the shelf. I like that in a vape shop.
Aside from that, the most impressive thing about Cool Clouds Vape Shop is their location. You can't possibly be more convenient for truckers. Yes, they have a lounge. They have a good but not great selection of both devices and liquids, but that said they had literally just opened that location the week before I stopped in. Perhaps they have a wider selection now, but even if they don't it was good enough to find something useful then. I need to see a little more on the shelves before I make them a premier shop here on the site, but that being said they are still a "must stop" with that location. 30 minute break or 10 hours, it doesn't really matter. They're right there and they have decent hours, being open from 11am to 8pm Monday through Saturday. Stop by and see them, you won't be disappointed. Also, show them your CDL and get an extra 10% off. Make sure to tell them Smokey and the Bandwidth sent you.
