WalMart, if they sold hookah products, would try and cut the costs so badly as they do everything else and turn it to complete garbage. So if they did I would stop smoking just to ensure I didn't have a need to buy a thing from them. As we do now, Target and Costco have everything we need to make sure they don't get a dime. Would it make a difference, no but I would feel happier.

to main stream for me, and plus all Chinese crap most likely. then you have to think of all the great vendors like john and mahir that will go out of business, and a economy today that it is isnt good.

Walmart isn't Sam Walton Store anymore. Once he died they Turned it into a Evil Empire. I worked for them for awhile, never again. They refuse to give benefits, and make you do things that are counter-intuitive as well as counter productive, then blame you.

I'll Keep my hookah to small stores in town.

i think that would be hella sick, because the clostest smokeshop is 50 miles away from here, and the nearest wal-mart is 20mins away. but they'd have knockoff hookahs, then new shisha brands would come into the picture...which would ruin the hookah scene...

I agree, hookah tobacco should be sold at Walmart and all other places that have cigs products. I am actully thinking about writing a letter to their management. They will make a lot of money.

i think that until hookah is more embraced by the US it would be a bad idea. people probably wouldn't use the products for shisha. i'm very content with the vendors we have here in our internet community.


now coals on the other hand? definitely. i'd love to pick me up some cocos from wally world

true to san diego having bad experiences at the walmart stores. i would not waste my time going to walmart for shisha or crappy hookahs. for hookahs to become mainstream would really annoy me with alot of ppl just buying it and not know anything about it, unlike here you can be noobs and learn somethings by researching it

Walmart would be an absolutely terrible vendor.

Shisha brands seem to thrive on finding their own niche, selling to that crowd, and if they fail to please that niche they fail. Walmart would find the cheapest shisha to appease 50-60% of the people, mass produce that product, and do their best to undercut prices to put other niche shishas out of business. If you didn't like their product once all the other brands were gone then too bad. Thats just for tobacco, and you know its true.

I hate to think what kind of cheap cast, poorly welded hookah with a horrible draw and a common chamber heart they would mass produce and sell to undercut traditional, well designed and carefully hand assembled hookahs.

And forget about walmart being a vendor who will ship you replacement parts free(hookah-shisha.com), talk to you on a forum(mahir, john, gabe, etc.), send you replacement product when you show that their product has a defect(gabe of exotica), and generally give a damn about your smoking satisfaction.(i know i didn't mention a lot of excellent vendors here, but these were the ones that came right to mind)

In other words, No Thankyou.
