Default Re: ******* hookah delivery

so i had this idea of placing a order at ******* hookah for some starbuzz etc. before placing it though i realized, this is silly, why am i doing this when johns store is right down the street. normally one would drive down there but i dont have a car and not many people have enough interest in hookah to give me a ride. so i cancelled it.

today i got a call from john to see whats going on and i told him my whole story about what happened last night. heres where things get interesting. john told me it wouldnt be a problem to make a delivery. yes. ******* hookah's first delivery. my mouth nearly dropped. i told him some things i needed: shisha and coals. he also made some AF suggestions - a buy five, get 3 free deal.

after all that was done and said, i waited a bit till john closed his store (four pm), then he arrived at my house. had it all there in a bag for me, i handed him the moneys and he left. as i said earlier, this is seriously beyond being a vendor. for him to do this for me was one of the nicest things someone has ever done for me.


heres a pic of all the goodies i got:

(SB citrus mist, SB peaches & creme, AF charcoal, AF pipe, AF cinnamon, AF apple, AF mango, AF melon, AF vanilla, AF berry, AF peach, pack of AF playing cards, not pictured is the huge smile on my face haha)

PS: there is no official delivery service or delivery van hahaha.. this was merely something john did for me because of my situation.
What a great vendor!! I've never dealt w/john but have coresponded w/him and he seems like a guy who is very dedicated to our hobby.
This is similar to an arangement I have w/Ramsey and Tarik from MNH.
They live 15 minutes outside of south minneapolis(where I live). I just place an order online, use my own personal discount code(hookahpro discount minus shipping), and swing by there house to pick up my goodies and chill for a bit. (I think I've done the ole squeeze n' sniff to every bag of moassell they have in stock!LOL)
It's really great to have vendors such as these guys a part of the community!
