Upon re-opening, it logged record sales in its ‘New to Vaping’ kits.

The firm, which specialises in vaping and alternative tobacco products, has had to adapt to the new way of life following the huge change in the retail landscape that has come as a result of the pandemic.

The forced closure of vaping stores during lockdown meant that smokers have not been able to access advice, products and help on how to quit.

“We recognise now more than ever the need for an enhanced level of service and support that our customers require following lockdown.”
