Virginia’s oldest and largest vape shop has closed.
Owner Dave Stottlemyre said he’s not sure what will happen to his business.
Vape shops like Stottlmyre’s are big business in the United States.
It’s one of the most lucrative industries in the world.
Stottliare said his shop sells about $500,000 worth of vaping products a year.
Stottlmyrre said vaping shops are booming in Virginia.
He said his store sold about 5,000 devices in its first year.
The business was located at 1220 S. Main St., in the town of Fairfax, which is about an hour and a half north of Charlottesville.
Stattlmyrre said it’s hard to say how many customers will come to his shop because they’re not a part of the vaping community.
He’s hoping to make it work.
He said the owner of the shop has quit smoking.
