    A Mall Kiosk just opened in my local mall here in Sarasota,FL. I have been looking to get into the Vape Space for the past year but do not have the funds to do so by myself.The Owner of the Company has proposed me as being a Business Manager and i was curious as to if you believe a Mall Kiosk can still be competative in this growing market. Sarasota and surounding areas already has a few B&M locations,so is there still room for a small Kiosk in the mall to survive with all the other competitors?
