Scottish High Streets Boosted by E-Cigarette Shops
This is welcome news to the beleaguered high streets in Scotland, that year on year are losing out to retail parks and online sales.
A report by the financial services firm PwC show a 75 per cent increase in the number of vape stores opening in 2015, however, some experts are claiming the rise is simply a short spike due to the recent popularity of vaping.
Colin Borland, head of external affairs for FSB Scotland said, The fact that fewer retailers are literally shutting up shop has to be good news. And, whether or not vaping is for you, it is heartening that new industries are choosing to base themselves on the high street, rather than setting up exclusively online.”
Bruce Cartwright, head of business recovery at PwC Scotland said, With the notable exception of Brantano Footwear, there have been fewer high-profile closures. We do see some growth, albeit many of these are small operations or franchises such as stores offering forms of vaping or e-cigarette advice.”
Vape shops are playing a vital role in swelling numbers of vapers that are switching over from smoking. Vape shops can give hands on and face to face advice, often vital for those starting out on their vaping journey, and can guide vapers to the right devices that keep them vaping, and save them money.
