Due to Government action by the State of California, all "flavored" vapor products are banned for in-person sales. Netvapes Retail locations will be shutting down in late December. We wish would could keep the stores open, but the bill covers any reasonable path forward for a business and the ban captures 85% of our revenue.
The biggest loser in all this is the current and former smokers of California. Vaping is an excellent and effective way to quit smoking and the misinformation from politicians, media and California Public Health has gift wrapped this industry to the tobacco companies.
We'd like to thank our loyal customers over the past 10 years for allowing us to serve you, and to help you stop smoking. You all have created some great memories for me, our family, and our employees. It has been a wild ride.
Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts and PLEASE don't go back to smoking!
-Jeremy Howard, The Howard Family & the Netvapes Team
