About Us

About River City Vapes you say...?


We are proud to be one of Edmonton's trusted source for vapers. There are many different words to describe the vaping devices and liquids we service and sell: e cigs, electronic cigarettes, vapes, e sticks, vape sticks, Juuls, e liquid, eliquid and a word you won't find anywhere else on our website except on this page e-juice (don't drink it, it's not juice kids).


I'm Shawn Kreeger, but you can call me Kreegz and along with my wife Kelly, we have been off of the stinkies (cigarettes aka tobacco) since February 2013. We started RCV in the spring of that same year, but initially just to help friends and family get off of the cancer sticks. With a huge amount of support from the community, it really took off like I never would have imagined!


Here's a quick timeline of our company milestones:

  • January 2013 - Shawn is introduced to his first e cig with nicotine, believes it might work.

  • February 2013 - Shawn and Kel have their last cigarettes!

  • March 2013 - Shawn starts sourcing vapes to give to family and friends.

  • Spring / Summer 2013 - Shawn sells vapes in Edmonton driving around and setting customers up and teaching the benefits of vaping.

  • Fall 2013 - Kel wants her kitchen table back so we find and start renovating a retail location @ 88 Street and 118 Avenue.

  • December 13, 2013 - Our first retail location opens on Alberta Avenue in Edmonton.

  • July 2014 - Having outgrown the "showbox", we move to the currently still occupied Fort Road location, it also remains our busiest vape shop!

  • Fall 2014 - River City Vapes is a founding member of The Canadian Vaping Association (CVA), a registered not-for-profit organization, established as the voice for the Canadian vaping industry.

  • April 2016 - Our second retail location opens, River City Vapes Windermere.

  • Fall 2017 - River City Vapes wins the 'Best of Edmonton' Vue Weekly reader poll for the 'Vape Shop' category.

  • May 2018 - Our third retail location and the model for our new vape shops going forward opens, River City Vapes Newcastle.

  • Fall 2018 - River City Vapes wins the 'Best of Edmonton' Vue Weekly reader poll, for the second year in a row, in the 'Vape Shop' category.

  • 2019 - The company is growing fast, stay tuned for more...
