Verde Valley Vapes looks like going kaput, tried to order some liquids, but my Visa was denied. Checked recent reviews and see many complains about lost money. Actually did not see anything positive since last December.
@B-boy-V3 hasn't been active since Nov. So I have no clue what's up there. But there is nothing official on their site.

In more positive news, both MyVaporStore and Element Vape are using alternate methods of shipping. Both sites are up and accepting orders. Read this to get an idea of what to expect now as our other online retailers follow suit:
while true some states are still closed to them... one can only hope to find a vendor who can...

My Freedom Smokes

4/7/21 @ 3:40pm

URGENT PLEASE READ: NEW CHANGES:

Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all shipping starting April 9th, 2021 at 3:00 PM EST. If you have vaping supplies that you need, please make sure to get your orders in before then.
On a brighter note, we are happy to announce that in-store pick-ups will once again begin for North Carolina and South Carolina customers starting April 8th, 2021!
However, for now, we will not be opening the storefront for customers to come in and make purchases inside of the store location. Please make sure your orders are placed online in advance of your arrival. I-store pick-ups will be available from 8am to 5pm EST Monday through Friday.
Again, we are working diligently to be fully compliant and look forward to getting everything in order so we can meet the needs of all the vapers and faithful customers we have had throughout the years!
Thank you for your patience and continued support.

Many of you are already aware of the changes that have occurred affecting the vaping industry. The most recent being the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act that includes any ENDS (Electronic Nicotine Delivery System) devices and components. We are working diligently to become compliant with the new laws. As such, much required work on our part is yet to be completed to ensure that we are adhering to all required protocols and procedures.

UPDATE*** 4.8.21

We will stop accepting new online orders at 11:59:59(EST) Friday April 17th 2021
. Hopefully this will be a temporary closure while we attempt to find a new carrier to carry your orders to your doors. So, the rest of this week and next week will be your last chance to order online from us.

If you are wondering why, and did not see our previous message, this is what is going on...

on December 27th, 2020, the Consolidated appropriations Act 2021 amended the PACT (Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking) Act to include e-cigarettes and all vaping products.

This addition of all vaping products to the PACT Act will prohibit retailers from shipping vaping products through USPS, UPS, and FedEx directly to consumers. This means that no products including: kits, coils, e-liquid and accessories will be able to be shipped to your home, PO Box, or APO.

Again, to all of our loyal online customers, we will deeply miss you all. Thank you for your patronage, we would never have achieved the success we have without you! We hope that we will be able to ship vaping products again at some point. We are currently looking into other shipping alternatives, but there will definitely be a significant gap in service.

While these shipping restrictions will close down our online store, all of our B&M stores will remain open. We do have plans to open more stores within our region in the near future as well, and who knows where we will open up shop after that.


Thank you all, we will miss each and everyone of you!

Just got this...IDK if previously posted.

They aren't effected by PACT, just like AK shops. So not a closure...but may as well be for most of us.
They won't be shipping to the lower 48 anymore.

ADDED BY STAFF*
Hawaii Residents: There will be no change in service since Hawaii is exempt from the PACT ACT.
Hawaii and Alaska are the only two states where intrastate shipping of vapor products direct to consumers is not outlawed by the PACT Act.
If you're not a resident of Hawaii, please read on.


Dear Customers,

The PACT ACT was passed at the end of December 2020 and it will bring major changes to our business starting April 26, 2021.

Since the PACT ACT labels vapor products as tobacco products, we will not be able to ship out orders via USPS (Our Main Carrier) as well as all the other major carriers (UPS, FedEx, DHL).

Due to the PACT ACT, we will stop shipping orders from our website for All States, Territories, and APO/FPO (EXCEPT HAWAII) on April 26, 2021.

If you need to stock up, we encourage you to do it ASAP, as we will not be able to ship out the order to you after April 26, 2021.

We would like to thank all of our customers who have been with us throughout the years. We hope that we will be able to serve you again in the future.
