These kitschy vape shops are multiplying faster than a batch of mogwai in a swimming pool. The fad has led to several such outposts on the Lower East Side, most recently the VapeYa shop on Orchard Street in Hell Square. Next to hop on the bandwagon is a smoke shop called “Cigar and Vape,” coming soon to 41 Essex Street.
Though, to be honest, this seems like it’ll be more the run-of-the-mill city smoke shop…
This store was previously occupied by Big Apple Boxes which shuttered over the summer after several years at this address. (It’s been operating for more than fifty years.) There had been rustling inside the store the last few weeks, though, culminating with the arrival of teaser banners yesterday.
