about Us

this is our story

While visiting family in Minnesota, Anthony and Janelle Squire were introduced to vaping during Christmas 2012.

We were amazed by how well the new products we tried truly satisfied our needs for cigarettes. Previously, we had tried cigalikes from the gas station and the experience was disappointing. We liked the idea of an alternative to smoking but cigalikes did not satisfy the cravings for us. When we returned home for our trip, we were unable to find a dedicated vapor shop that had the information and type of products we liked. Within the first month, we had started the ball rolling for opening our own shop!

We love feeling better from not smoking and we wanted to share this great product with others! Since opening our business, we have helped countless people put down cigarettes.

Our Team

Janelle Squire

Owner and Manager

Janelle began vaping 4 years ago. CigaWatt became my full time career in June 2013. It has been wonderful to have this experience to run the family business. The entire family has been united in reaching our goals. Our Children helped with the clean up and decorating the space more than once and the oldest two children have also worked for CigaWatt as well.  Many times Janelle is not seen, as she now has office work to take care of, but she is always around if needed. Our employees have become part of our family and a part of our lives.

Anthony Squire


Anthony started his journey to vape while visiting in Minnesota during a below zero Christmas. Smoking in the home wasn't allowed so he was willing to give it a shot because he didn't have to go outside in the freezing cold. It didn't take him long to make the full switch when he realized he felt better and vaping tasted much better too.

Anthony works full time as a VMWare specialist and more in the IT field. You will see him time to time on our Facebook Live videos and popping by the store.
