A message to our Chasing Vapes family:
After much deliberation and prayer, we have decided to close the shop for the next few weeks.
This has been a hard decision on all fronts, like all other small mom & pops, we don’t know how we will pay our bills during this shutdown or if we will be able to catch up when we re-open, but your lives, the lives of our friends, family, and community are more valuable to us than money.
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
While most of us are not at great personal health risk from COVID-19, there are those in our community who are.
If we do not do our part to contain the virus and “flatten the curve,” we may be unwittingly putting the lives of our community at risk. Not only this, but we feel a responsibility to help keep our nurses, doctors, and hospitals from being overwhelmed, so they can serve those who are vulnerable and most in need of care.
For those who’ve asked how they can support small business during this time, we like many others, offer online gift card purchases for future visits.
These gift card sales are literally a lifeline for small business to get through the next two or three weeks.
Additionally, please buy from locally owned small business every chance you get, as they, like us, don’t have a corporation to back them up and your support will mean the difference in a voluntary closure in order to protect our community, and a devastating permanent one.
We miss you all already, and look forward to seeing you all again. We pray that day comes soon.
♥ With love,
Gene, Stephanie & Brittni
