Less than a year ago, Stacey White and Brendan Darby opened Thunderbird Vapes. It was the husband-and-wife team’s first business venture together.

Here, customers can buy electronic vaping devices – battery-powered alternatives to cigarettes that allow people to inhale vapour – and e-juices (the liquid used in the devices) with names like Twelve Monkeys and Blind Pig that come in flavours ranging from mojito to butter-pecan brûlé.
