Due to the most recent government advice surrounding the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we will be closing all of our stores with immediate effect.
As you know, so far our aim has been to keep our stores open for as long as possible for our customers. The reasoning behind this has come from Dr Riccardo Polosa, a World renowned scientist and researcher on vaping and tobacco harm reduction and founder of the Centre of Excellence for the Acceleration of Harm Reduction, who during the lockdown of Italy and Spain successfully argued that, "due to the stress caused by the Coronavirus, with the closure of vape shops, vapers were highly likely to go back to smoking cigarettes to maintain their nicotine needs. This could be dangerous from a public health perspective and could heighten the risk of exposure of tobacco smoke to families and children during the crisis. It could also place a further burden on an already overstretched NHS and limit the government’s ambition of reducing smokers in the UK.”
Our team have been working immensely hard to ensure the millions of existing vapers in the UK and remaining smokers continue to have access to, not only the products, but the vital support that will help them on their cigarette free journey.
Our website and online sales will remain operational throughout this time and our customer service team will be on hand to assist with any enquiries, but please bear with us as we navigate this unprecedented situation.
