Our Story

Higher Grade was founded by long-time friends, Ian Hull and Alex Ostrovsky in the summer of 2018. We opened our first retail location near downtown Noblesville in the fall of that year which was a rapid success. From inception – our primary vision was to scale operations across multiple locations in order to better serve a growing & under-served customer base in central Indiana. As of today, we are one of the largest smoke shop retailers in Indiana, as we currently own & operate 8 locations in the areas of Indianapolis, Carmel, Fishers, Fountain Square, Avon, Noblesville and Anderson. As always, we will continue marching forward into new markets based on customer demand.

Higher Grade prides itself on carrying products that are both authentic & reputable – ensuring our customers receive the highest possible value when they shop with us. Our team focuses on providing a higher-end shopping experience with tailored recommendations based on your needs. Our staff members are motivated & eager to answer any questions you may have.

Educated staff, customer care, fair pricing, and aggressive promotions are at the very core of our success. Customers do not leave a Higher Grade location without a lasting positive impression. But don’t just take our word for it – read our reviews!
