SAN FRANCISCO, July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing to establish itself as the premier developers of vaporizers, PAX Labs, Inc., today announced a partnership with Notre Shop in Chicago, upscale menswear and lifestyle boutique. As part of the collaboration, PAX will be entering the fashion retail store category in Chicago. The Notre Shop will now be carrying the recently introduced PAX 2, the most innovative vaporizer yet.
The fashion retail store partnership extends PAX 2 awareness by reaching style-savvy consumers. With its sleek design and superior technology, PAX 2 fits seamlessly into the fashion retail channel, offering these consumers a new way to experience the most intelligent, premium and highest performing vaporizer.
"In line with our pursuit of the most considerate and innovative design, the new PAX 2 remains unparalleled in its market and we're thrilled to see a personal item like this being offered alongside our highly thought-out curation of products that push the boundaries of a gentleman's everyday carry. The Chicago market will be pleased with the release of this product and the customer experience we can offer alongside it," said Rob Wilce, Cofounder of Notre.
"Entering the fashion category is not an expected path for vaporization brands. However, PAX 2's sleek design and best-in-class performance reflect well a modern man's lifestyle," said Richard Mumby, chief marketing officer of PAX Labs, Inc. "We see great opportunity for collaboration across the fashion industry. We've developed retail partnerships with leading outlets, fashion sponsorships and collaborations to introduce and contextualize our product."
In celebration of this collaboration, PAX and Notre Shop Chicago are co-hosting an invite-only launch event at the Notre Shop store – 5202 N. Clark Street this Thursday, July 30, from 7-10 p.m. – featuring a live DJ set by Mano, open bar and hors d'oeuvres by Limelight Catering, and complimentary engraving for PAX 2 purchases.
