About Our Company
Headed West is proud to be a part of the Colorado community that we have been serving for over 24 years. Time has allowed our industry to evolve and trends have changed but our commitment to offering an amazing selection of high-quality products and excellent customer service has not.
We remain committed to our roots of being a full-service smoke shop and lifestyle store that offers something for everyone. From the obscure to the mainstream we try to keep it stocked so you can enjoy the lifestyle you choose. Even more importantly, we take the responsibility of understanding our products to heart and pride ourselves in being able to help customers learn about them. With so many changes in legalities, technology, and product innovation it is important to have accurate information to share. Afterall, sharing is caring.
Our staff is also something special – seriously! The energy and personality that our team brings to work is truly awesome. The organic connections that are made with our customers are a testament to why we have been blessed to be a market leader for over two decades. People make the difference and we couldn’t be more grateful for all of those who have worked with us over the years to help make Headed West what it is today.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We appreciate your curiosity and hope to be able to work with you soon!
Why the name “Headed West”? The founder, “Big Mike”, grew up and graduated college in Missouri. After graduating, he borrowed money from his grandparents to open up a smoke shop and “Headed West” to Colorado. The original Headed West store opened off of Colfax in Denver in 1996. After moving three times the store landed one of its’ current locations in 2006 at 4811 S. Broadway in Englewood. We refer to that store as the “OG”, or Original Gangsta! In 2013 we opened our second store in Greenwood Village at 9674 E. Arapahoe Rd., endearingly referred to as the “DTC”. Why grow slow? That is a question we get asked a lot. The truth is that we are a mom and pop shop and we operate like one. We have “regulars” who have been shopping with us for over 18 years now! Most importantly we want to take the time to provide the best service for everyone who comes through our doors in effort to make them a lifetime customer. No need to be big, just critical to be awesome! Our mission is the have the best selection and service in the state.
