Originally from Broussard, I've always loved the city. There is character in almost every small business and this is simply one of those places that epitomizes that. I now live in Abbeville, but was fortunate enough to be in Broussard at the time and was looking for some vape shops in the area.
A place called Parkway Vapes and Hookah Lounge happened to be the closest to my current location so I decided to go browse their selection, however upon arrival the staff were busy. I took the few minutes to check out the shop next door (Riverside) and was very impressed with the array of merchandise offered as well as the very fair pricing items were listed. However any place many places can have good merchandise and prices, but in order to achieve a 5 star rating in my opinion is all about presentation in how you are treated as a customer and how you feel upon both entering as well as exiting the business.
I was greeted immediately when entering, the staff was kind in asking what he could do to assist. He suggested good products. I feel it's also important to note that he was not the kind of person to hover over customers, like you'd find at other places (Best Buy) for example where they almost make you feel criminal for wanting to simply browse.
If your passing this place I encourage you to check it out, you won't be harassed, and you will probably find exactly what your looking for. Also the shop was very clean. I try to critique and rate very seriously and it's rare to find a place that feels as comfortable as Riverside makes you feel these days.
Keep up the great work! 5 out of 5, look forward to the popping in the next time I'm in the area! Thanks again for your hospitality. Shops like these are becoming harder to find, and it is a very warming feeling to find one!
