COVID 19 Update
We just wanted to update all of you and suggest some precautions. As of now all our locations are opened regular hours. We will send out an email to update and place a notice on our website if this changes.
For those who have been in our stores the past 2 weeks, many of you noticed we are taking extra precautions. We are sterilizing counters and everything on them between customers, there is no more flavor sampling until this clears up, we are now using gloves if we need to handle your device, the door handle is cleaned if someone touches it and we are being extra careful.
That being said, we hope you will not take any risks you don’t need to take. If you have enough liquid to last a couple days, please consider ordering online rather than coming to one of the stores. If you need help ordering online, call us and press Extension 9 for help with website orders. After ordering online, you will receive an email with payment information if you are an existing customer.
If you must come to the store to purchase something but would like to avoid coming in, you may call in advance and let us know what you need and we will have it ready for you and bring it out to you so you don’t need to come in.
Please be extra cautious not to touch the mouthpiece of your device unless your hands are freshly washed with soap for 20+ seconds. Remember not to put your device down on anything that may have germs.
Please remember that during times of stress, nicotine consumption increases! And that if you are working from home, that is 8-10 additional hours a day you may be vaping. Please prepare by having enough liquid so you do not run out just in case we are forced to close temporarily. If we are forced by government order to close the stores, we will continue to provide product via delivery if necessary. If you are quarantined and cannot leave home, please contact us for shipping or delivery options.
Be safe and remember that much of this illness is respiratory so this is the most important time to remain smokefree! Protect your health and make sure we set a great example by keeping the vaping population healthy.
We are aware that most of you know about all the misinformation about vaping spread by our government health departments the past 6 months and so it is hard to know what to believe when they tell us things so you can take this with a grain of salt, but for more information on Coronavirus please check the NYS Department of Health Website or click for source .
Thank you for almost 9 years of continued loyalty and be safe out there!

NYS Warning regarding vaping!
We have been in business since 2011. Most of you have been our customers for many years. Over the years, the government has gone to many lengths to shut us down and get you to return to using tobacco products. We have been fighting them for many years. They have failed to get rid of us and now they are resorting to misleading vapers by hiding the truth from them.
BE AWARE! We are not asking you to ignore government warnings, but we are asking you to read all the information and use your own judgement to do what you feel is best for you.
On September 5th the NYS Department of Health put out a warning…
“Department Warns Against Use of Black Market Vaping Products”
The warning that stated…
“As of September 5, 2019, the Department has received 34 reports from New York State physicians of severe pulmonary illness among patients ranging from 15 to 46 years of age who were using at least one cannabis-containing vape product before they became ill.”
This full notice is at the link is below…
The FDA has also put out a warning against using black market THC products.
This week, the NYS Governor’s office will start asking people to stop using ALL “vape products while the investigation into the definitive cause of reported vaping-associated illnesses nationwide can be better determined”.
They think that vape products are a luxury, but for many of us they are a necessity if we want to stay away from deadly combustible tobacco products.
To date, not one confirmed case has shown any illness from using unadulterated nicotine e-cigarettes.
Although they have not found any cases of vaping related illness shown to be caused by vaping nicotine e-liquid, they are issuing this warning because some of the affected people stated that they had “only used nicotine products”. We suspect that these statements were made by young people who did not want to admit using illegal drugs.
After selling the same e-liquid for over 8 years, not one of our customers has had ever lung related illness related to vaping nicotine products. Here is a link to the press release issued by our trade association.
