The UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA) has celebrated the fact that vape shops across England and Wales are expecting to welcome huge numbers of customers – including many smokers seeking expert help and guidance to quit – when they finally got to re-open this morning.
Over 2,000 vape shops across the UK have been preparing to reopen their doors to customers again ever since the Government confirmed the next stage of lifting lockdown restrictions would proceed as previously announced. Non-essential retail outlets including vape shops were able to reopen their doors from today across England and Wales. In Scotland however, non-essential retail must remain shut until Monday, April 26.
The UKVIA (1) has stated it welcomes the relaxing of restrictions as the latest step on the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, especially as this coincides with the hugely successful, month-long awareness campaign VApril.
