This is the friendliest, most professional vape shop I have ever visited. All the staff there is simply wonderful, but Teri is especially helpful and serves as an inviting presence. She always explains the products thoroughly and does so with an energetic smile. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to quit smoking cigarettes or wanting to try vaping for the first time. Extremely welcoming with top-notch customer service!

Teri from Central Iowa Vapers is the only reason I don't smoke cigarettes anymore. She's the best and knows everything and not to mention she is so nice and patient!!! Definitely the best customer service I've ever had! My body feels so much better switching to vaping and I can't thank Teri enough and I get so excited every time I get to see her!! THANK YOU so much Teri ❤️❤️❤️

Easily my favorite place to shop, employees all know their products, really engaging to customers who have questions. Shout out to Teri especially, she's recommended several products to me I would have normally just ignored.

Terry is amazing! So knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks for everything 😃
Bought this Vape.. it is lite and fits in your hands perfectly. It shows you the battery life and how many puffs you take. The settings are easy. I like the color of mine. It has a pink shine on it. It doesn't leak. I'm so happy about that. It charges fast.

The HUGE amount of customer service my husband and I received from Eli this evening was night and day from the horrible "customer service" we experienced from Scott at the Ashworth location. Thank you so much to not only Eli, but Keo as well to ensure we were made right and even. Eli, you are hands down AMAZING!! We will travel the extra 17 miles to your location to make sure we get treated right and the correct pricing and products. Thank you!!

Don't believe them when they say they will keep a particular model and supplies for it. Don't follow the recommended things. Just go to route 65 they are knowledgeable and trustworthy

They provide great service everytime we go and Teri and the rest of the staff always know just what to recommend. Phenomenal.

The slowest service of any CIV locations. They will have 5-10 people waiting in line while they spend 15 minutes explaining every different aspect of each vape. They even made everyone wait while they assembled and filled a new vape for that customer. Hey CIV, there's this thing called multitasking, it's quite helpful.

If you come here, you'll be best off knowing exactly what you need. My biggest issue is that they consistently (like 75% of the time) give us the wrong parts for our vapes, even if we have it in-store to show them. The employees here don't seem to be familiar with many products or have the ability/technology/training to search for compatible parts like atomizers or tanks. The only positives I have to say is that their rewards program is nice and we haven't had issues getting things exchanged when they sell us the wrong items. I think their selection of juice is decent but I use 6mg. My husband uses 12mg and he doesn't seem to have much to choose from.

It's a clean place with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. They have a decent selection of juice, as well as units, batteries, parts and mods. The prices are fair and they carry quite a few brands. If you aren't sure if they'll have what you need, just give them a quick call. They can usually tell you right away if they carry it or if it's available at another store in the area.
